|This release contains the complete trio recordings made by Paul Bley for the Savoy label, which were recorded in two sessions on August 17, 1962 and September 12, 1963. These recordings have long been out of print. By the time these recordings were made, the Canadian pianist (born in 1932) had already performed with Charles Mingus, Jimmy Giuffre and Sonny Rollins. However, these trio recordings would mark the direction he would follow in the future : he relocated to Los Angeles in 1957, where his bookings included a lengthy engagement at the Hillcrest Club with Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Billy Higgins and Charlie Haden. Personnel : Paul Bley, piano; Steve Swallow, bass; and Pete La Roca, drums. Total Time: 72:50 - 15 tracks - new and careful remastering - Includes 12-page booklet with detailed information.
