By the time these trio recordings were made, Canadian pianist Paul Bley (1932-2016) had already performed with Charles Mingus, Jimmy Giuffre and Sonny Rollins. However, these trio recordings would mark the direction he would follow in the future. Those were the initial days of the free jazz movement, in which musicians like Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Sonny Rollins, Andrew Hill and Bley himself tried to “free” themselves from the limitations of improvising over the usual harmonic structures of standard songs and display their creativity without chords, while remaining true to the integrity of the compositions they were playing.
