  • Description

    When pianist Paul Bley passed away on January 3, 2016, we lost one of the most important improvisers/innovators of modern jazz. He was instrumental in the surge of free jazz in the 60s. He established his iconic style and remained influential throughout his life in both avant-garde and mainstream jazz.

    The album here is the sequel to SteepleChase's 1986 LP 'Live' from the live recording of March 26, 1986 at Copenhagen's famous Jazzhus Montmartre.

    "If you appreciate Bley's quintessential lyricism and Lundgaard's singing lines, this one and the other ('Live Again') are noteworthy albums." - A.G., Compact

    "The beautifully clear recording captures Bley's incisive touch to perfection...recommended to both confirmed Bley addicts and anyone in need of a representative introduction to the startlingly focused genius of the most lucid of romantics." - Michael Tucker, Jazz Journal International
