Paul Bley: The Logic of Chance

Arrigo Cappelletti
Translated by Gregory Burk

Arrigo Cappelletti retraces the life one of the most complex and mysterious personalities in the history of jazz. Paul Bley, born in Montreal in 1932, is one of the most important exponents of jazz of the last 50 years. He occupies, among the pantheon of jazz giants, an eccentric and aristocratic position, a reflection of a restless spirit, free and anarchic. An advocate of improvisation, he has always favored free jazz.Bley honed his talent in the bands of Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Lester Young and Sonny Rollins. He played with jazz icons such as Keith Jarrett, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman and Carla Bley.
