Paul Bley Trio-Canada 1968


For an Australian friend...
A great Paul Bley trio session, put out by radio Canada international transcription service, recorded in Montreal in December 68, i believe this was Bley's last  entirely acoustic release from the sixties and for some time until ECM'S, Open to Love, last in a glorious sequence spanning ten or so indispensable records, and one of the few which has never made it to cd ..

Four great tunes by Annette Peacock , his wife at the time, with Mario Pavone's only stint in Bleys acoustic trio.
 For some inexplicable reason this album is not mentioned In the Paul Bley entry on the Jazz discographies project site.
this album's been posted as mp3's at lucky psychic hut , and may well still be available somewhere in that format.
Bley's website, a rich source of articles , interviews and home of  the IAI label

Nice, and thank you - but just FYI, it's not true FLAC. It's been upconverted from mp3. Spek shows the same as the other site's 320.

Awesome, thanks! I've always loved Bley's 60s records. This is a real gem!

Thanks.

Thanks for the primo Bley SOTISE. Never thought I'd run into this one. Back in January matt w requested Improvisie in the comments to your Dual Unity post. I've taken the liberty to upload a CD rip.

I'd also like to renew my request for Bley-Peacock Synthesizer Show - Revenge: "The Bigger The Love, The Greater The Hate" If anyone can share this rarity in lossless I'd be over the moon.

I Also have a scuffed copy of mr joy
if anyone needs it, i'd have to check but i dont think its been reissued since the mid 70's

SOTISE, Mr. Joy would be aces. I return to Bley & Peacock over and over again. Gotta say your vinyl rips have been incredibly satisfying and very much appreciated. The one under consideration here and the lost Lacy tracks couldn't sound any better! Many thanks, ~Robert

Chris said...

Thanks Sotise, I love this period of Bley. I posted a good rip of Mr. Joy 2 years ago at the old Crypt. The original links are still alive, Enjoy!

Excellent. Many thanks for sharing this.

SOTISE said...

Thanks for Sharing Chris , but i guess a "good rip"is a matter of taste and opinion, your rip is way too over worked for my taste , i just don't understand that level of heavy handedness, the piano at times sounds like some gleaming metallophone, not natural at all.

Chris said...

@ SOTISE thanks for your opinion my copy was quite a wreck and noisy and back then I didn't quite understand the nuances of ripping. I look to yours for comparison.

nick said...

Very nice indeed, thank you very much for this. fwiw, most of jazz lp's released by Radio Canada International that I've seen (and there are some great ones) have CANADA emblazoned prominently on the stock cover art, so I doubt that's really the actual title of the album. But anyway. Great stuff!
