    Very sad news indeed a very varied career here is some less avant work from his trio period with Jimmy Giuffre which went quite avant garde itself on albums such as 'Thesis' but this is just a beautiful track from those years:

      Out of all the records I've ever sold I most regret selling Dual Unity. I bought it in the 70s from a great 2nd hand shop that had a massive roomful of jazz. Paid very little for it - less than a fiver I think. I got a ton of wonderful records in that shop, most of which I still have.... but why did I sell Dual Unity? Damn.
      Added bonus - it also features the Dutch percussion genius Han Bennink.
      rip Paul.

        So many greats seem to be leaving us as of late.

          True. I think it is very sad when they die young(ish) like the Specials drummer or Lemmy but I suppose since 1963, a large number of artists suddenly started to come onto the "scene" and got well known and now we are seeing the natural ending of life of those high profile people.
          I don;t think that the lifestyle of breathing in cigarette smoke in venues, travelling all the time, financial stress and late nights etc... helps one to be healthy and live longer.
          That I can try to explain it all by logic, doesn;t make me feel any better or make things less sad.
          Actually, whenever I think of Lemmy and Stevie Wright, I still feel a bit depressed. Their passing really had an impact on me.

            We could have a whole thread about this phenomena of finding out about famous people dying but I want to just add that nowadays people can follow their favourite artist or band on social media and post to forums when they find out they or a member has died. They can also type in "RIP" on a Google-News search everyday and see who died. This sort of thing goes towards amplifying and multiplying what is happening, IMO.

            Just my 2 cents worth.

              I don't know I've never bought the 'smokey venues' thing, seen many brass players live well past their 70's, Sam Rivers was still gigging at 88 for example but it is sad when they die young. I think at the moment its coming to a time when a lot of the artists recording in the 60's through to the early 70's are coming to their natural end but its still sad.

              Don't do twitter anymore seems your'e made to feel you should make some comment whether you knew who the person was or not or your'e pounced upon for being some kind of uncaring cnut.

                Pipe smoking genius. When I think of Paul Bley I, inevitably think of Ida Lupino. It's nice when your wife can write you beautiful tunes to play.

                    Just realised after listening to it again in the car that he features in my XMAS Swap mix towards the end. Spooky but happy he's in there.
