"Paul Bley Trio, live at the International Jazz Festival, Lugano, Switzerland August 31st, 1966. The young Paul Bley earned his spurs playing with legends including Charles Mingus, Art Blakey, Chet Baker, Jimmy Giuffre, Ornette Coleman, and Bill Evans. As the 1960s progressed, he increasingly embraced the avant-garde, with arguably his greatest successes coming in the piano trio format. Originally broadcast on the RSI Rete Due radio station in the summer of 1966, this superb set included material by Bley, his wife Carla, Annette Peacock, and Sonny Rollins. The entire broadcast, digitally remastered, is presented here with background notes and images."
