Paul Bleyin Luzern 2009

"In the final reckoning,
PAUL BLEY's influence over the last 50 years of jazz -
and it continues -
will be enormous....
Deeply original and aesthetically agressive,
Mr. Bley long ago found a way  to express
his long, elegant, voluminous thoughts
in a manner that implies complete autonomy
from its given setting but isn't quite free jazz. 
The music runs on a mixture of deep historical knowledge
and its own inviolable principles."

Ben Ratliff,  New York Times,  Sunday May 21, 2006
