Primal Scene: Paul Bley

Rainbow of Sound

Somewhere in the second half of the nineties.

Leuven.

Some concert hall.

Or was it in Brussels…

 

A Paul Bley solo concert.

 

Paul Bley hammering different notes on the piano, with the sustain pedal on.

At a certain moment he stops playing and lets the harmonics take shape together.

 

All of a sudden, a rainbow coming out of

the piano.
