About

“Carla Bley and Her Remarkable Big Band” – as it says on the cover – recorded live at Paris’s famous New Morning club in a set of new but nostalgically-inflected material. “We couldn’t bring back the past, but this was a chance to pay our respects to the wonderful big bands and great American songwriters that dominated American popular music in the first half of the 20th century”. Warm and witty playing by all of Bley’s cast in charts that bear out Nat Hentoff’s judgement: “Her scores for big jazz bands are matched only by those of Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus for yearning lyricism, explosive exultation and other expressions of the human condition.”

Tracklisting:
1. Greasy Gravy
2. Awful Coffee
