1999 CD release.
Bassist Gary Peacock pulled together this reunion of a classic edition of the Paul Bley Trio. They've played together in duos over the years, but this - rather astonishingly - is the first time that Bley, Peacock and Motian have recorded as a trio in 35 years.This was a history-making group, free and yet intensely melodic; it has lost none of its persuasiveness. Highlights include Bley's depth-sounding explorations of the bottom end of the Bösendorfer piano on 'Not Zero', a reworking of 'Fig Foot' from the trio's original 60s repertoire, a stunning Peacock solo on 'Entelechy', and much spirited spontaneous interaction.
