Carla Bley - 1977-08-24, Chateauvallon, France

Boo to you too!
 


Today, March 8, is international woman's day. It seems like as good a time as ever to share some music by one of my favourite jazz composers: Carla Bley! I've got a ton of her music, but if I'm being honest, I like the late 70s/early 80s period the most.

Today's share comes from a FM broadcast in France, right at the start of this run. I'm not sure of the details, but make sure you stick around for the star-spangled finale, where Bley and company work their arrangement of the American anthem, among other songs.

EVERYDAY'S a good day to listen to Carla Bley, but today suits just fine. Thank you for this.

I too prefer Carla's late-70s/early 80s period, though that's when I first listened to her, so I can't be sure that it's really her best or just when I first fell for her music.

I'll have it up by the weekend, as long as nothing too crazy happens at work. It's been a very hectic couple of weeks!
