Paul Bley is celebrating his 87th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed pianists of his generation.
Popular pianist Paul Bley (Paul Bley with Gary Peacock, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 87th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Bley, a cultural icon
Born in Montreal on November 10, 1932, Paul Bley's career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in Canadian history. Bley's not just a great pianist, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Paul hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Paul Bley as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 87.
Happy Birthday, Paul, you're the best!
