Pianist and composer Paul Bley has been making records now for more than 50 years. His solo recordings encompass a great deal of his generous catalog. Bley has studied so many different aspects of jazz, and improvisational music both American and European, that these recordings always offer a revealing, no-holds-barred glimpse of where he's at as a musician at any given time. About Time, released on the Montreal label Justin Time, contains just two pieces: the 33-plus-minute title track and the Sonny Rollins tune "Pent-Up House," which lasts another ten. They reveal the entire range of Bley's considerable gifts as a pianist and improviser.

When tuberculosis forced Ray Crawford to give up his gig playing tenor sax and clarinet in Fletcher Henderson’s band of the early 1940’s, he decided to switch to guitar. Ray became an important cog in pianist Ahmad Jamal’s early groups and his unique, percussive style was soon appropriated by other guitarists including the great Herb Ellis. Ray went on to record with Gil Evans towards the end of the 1950’s, and after settling in Los Angeles he started to work for the legendary organist Jimmy Smith — an association that would last well into the 1980’s.
