AllMusic Review by

An excellent solo date by Paul Bley, his improvisations on three brief pieces (including George Gershwin's "Porgy") and a 16-minute version of his own "Axis" are thoughtful and sometimes introspective explorations. Bley has long given the avant-garde an alternative approach to piano from Cecil Taylor's and this is a good example of his artistry.
