Jazz Harmonie TV - Dec. 8, 1973


Paul Bley, a great pianist from Montreal (Oscar Peterson is the other one.)

Born November 10, 1932.

In the 1950s he started the Jazz Workshop in Montreal. This led to opportunities to perform and record with Charlie Parker. It also led to opportunities to perform with Lester Young and Ben Webster.

Later he was affiliated with Charles Mingus. In 1953 Mingus produced the album "Introducing Paul Bley album."

In 1958, he arranged for Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins to perform at the Hillcrest Club in California.

In 1964 Bley helped start the Jazz Composers Guild. The Guild brought together many free jazz musicians in New York: Roswell Rudd, Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, his ex-wife Carla Bley, Michael Mantler, Sun Ra, and others.
