About the album
Bassist Gary Peacock pulled together this reunion of a classic edition of the Paul Bley Trio. They've played together in duos over the years, but this - rather astonishingly - is the first time that Bley, Peacock and Motian have recorded as a trio in 35 years.This was a history-making group, free and yet intensely melodic; it has lost none of its persuasiveness. Highlights include Bley's depth-sounding explorations of the bottom end of the Bösendorfer piano on "Not Zero", a reworking of "Fig Foot" from the trio's original 60s repertoire, a stunning Peacock solo on "Entelechy", and much spirited spontaneous interaction.
