This transcription is of Paul Bley‘s performance of Carla Bley‘s “Closer” from Open, to Love, which was released in 1972 on ECM. Due to the nature of his performance, the rhythmic notation is somewhat inexact and subjective, so listening to the recording is the best way to figure out the phrasing and timing of the whole thing. Paul Bley, piano.
