SCCD 31379 Reality Check / Paul Bley Trio

It is Paul Bley’s steadfast refusal to be typecast, pigeon-holed, static which has kept his mind and music so fresh and vital since the early 1950s. His playing has preserved a sense of mystery. That does not need to be explained – even in this 1990s Reality Check – but should rather be enjoyed for the rare gift which we recognise it to be.”
