Abstract:

"Stopping Time is the story of Paul Bley's odyssey through the most turbulent years in modern jazz. A successful bebop musician throughout the 1950s, he honed his talent in the bands of Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Charles Mingus, and Sonny Rollins. Yet, it was in a Los Angeles nightclub that Paul Bley found his true direction when two young musicians named Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry sat in with his band. As soon as they started to play, Bley knew that this was the music he had been looking for. Returning to New York with his first wife, composer and arranger Carla Bley, he became a central figure in the 1960s jazz revolution. Using one of the very first Moog synthesizers, he explored, with Annette Peacock, the areas between jazz, popular song, and sheer electronic sound. In the 1970s Bley toured North America, Europe, and Japan playing solo piano and leading trios with musicians such as Gary Peacock, Paul Motian, Dave Holland, and Barry Altschul. In 1974, Paul Bley and his wife Carol Goss formed their own record label, Improvising Artists, and recorded Sam Rivers, Sun Ra, and a young unknown guitarist named Pat Metheny."--Jacket.
