Free Jazz star and keyboard pioneer Paul Bley brings his innovative creativity to this album, Paul Bley: Synth Thesis. His organic blend of traditional acoustic sounds and electronic experimentation culminate in a unique, sonically surprising, and compelling, futuristic experience. Consisting of acoustic piano and synthesizers, the recording is Bley’s first electro-acoustic album in twenty years, and is every bit as brilliantly original as we have come to expect from this great piano maestro.

5 Stars...timbral selectivity and rhythmic spaciousness . . .

dramatically evocative contrasts . . . the synths sound utterly fresh . . .

unique sense of harmony and line."                           - Down Beat Magazine



"…a wonderful world of music . . . His creativity never seems to stop."

- Jazz Life Magazine ( Japan)


Sometimes the best improvised music sounds as if it was meticulously composed, and it is precisely in this spirit that Jazz pianist / composer Paul Bley created the Postcards Records album Paul Bley Synth Thesis (also available on CD).  Paul’s collaborations over the years with such artists as Charlie Parker, Pat Metheny, Lester Young, & Charles Mingus put him in the top ranks of the Jazz pantheon, and this album naturally progresses his trendsetting path into the future.
