    Paul Bley was barely into his twenties when he left Montreal for New York City, yet he had already played with Charlie Parker and subbed for Oscar Peterson at the Alberta Lounge. The piano prodigy had been leading his own bands in Montreal clubs since he was thirteen. Stopping Time is the story of a unique Canadian artist and his odyssey through the most turbulent years in modern jazz. Paul Bley was one of the subjects of Ron Mann's award-winning feature documentary "Imagine the Sound." Now in his sixties, Bley is touring more than ever, and recording with everyone from Kenny Wheeler to Charlie Haden. He lives with his wife, artist Carol Goss, and their family in upstate New York.
