Paul Bley's music is not for everyone but for those for whom it is for - nothing else rings as true. Bley is one of the Greats among improvisational musicians. Over the years he has developed a deeply poetic dialect within the language of jazz that is all his own and is profoundly rewarding for those who take the time to learn it. Now in his 70's, his playing continues to open up new territory at a time when most players have long-since begun to stick with what they know. Listening to Paul Bley requires one to drop all preconceived notions and open up to to the music as it happens. It is definitely not music for someone who wants the security of hearing what they already know.

This one's not my cup of tea. I listened to the complete CD, and I have no desire to listen again. I need some structure in music, and this was completely without what I need.
