Personnel Paul Bley- piano Gary Peacock- double-bass Paul Motian- drums. Pianist Paul Bley is here joined by Gary Peacock and drummer Paul Motian. In various combinations they have performed and recorded together since the '60s. Their sympathetic interplay is the result of both familiarity and their keen skills as improvisers.
Re-united with bassist Gary Peacock and percussionist Paul Motian (their last recording together for ECM was made more than two decades earlier), the trio revisits the quirky "Fig Foot," and explores colors, moods, and even a touch of blues on a set of all original compositions. Bley is especially effective exploring the lower sonorities, while Peacock's full-sounding bass throbs with joy. Motian is characteristically exquisite, his soft, layered, sensitive strokes prodding his colleagues.
Paul Bley with Gary Peacock is an album by Canadian jazz pianist Paul Bley with American bassist Gary Peacock recorded in 1963 and 1968 and released on the ECM label in 1970. The brittle, lo-fi sound doesn't detract from the album's historical value".
Not Two, Not One is the first recording featuring Paul Bley, Paul Motian and Gary Peacock as a working unit since Bley’s 1970 ECM recording titled, Paul Bley with Gary Peacock. Twenty-nine years later they reunite as the overall results prove to be substantially rewarding. Paul Bley is an expert at merging lush romanticism with avant-garde or free jazz improvisation. Don’t You Know is probing, sentimental and climactic as a brief fifty-five second reprise of Not Zero; In One Part closes out this impressive recording.
