Post-bop jazz has produced only a few first-rate composers of larger forms; Carla Bley ranks high among them. Bley possesses an unusually wide compositional range; she combines an acquaintance with and love for jazz in all its forms with great talent and originality. Her music is a peculiarly individual type of hyper-modern jazz. Bley is capable of writing music of great drama and profound humor, often within the confines of the same piece. As an instrumentalist, she makes a fine composer; she plays piano and/or organ with most of her bands, and while her playing is always quite musical, it's clear that her strengths lie elsewhere.

CARLA BLEY Trios

Album · 2013 · Post Bop
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

"Trios", Carla Bley's first album for ECM (for decades, her previous releases were all self-produced with ECM as the distributor only) is an elegant collection of her classic compositions recorded in trio format (with her regular collaborators bassist Steve Swallow and British reedist Andy Sheppard). These are well-known songs we have heard in big band arrangements (often in more than just one version), but they sound different here, much more chamber in quality and very "European" as played by a drummer-less trio.

After all these decades, Carla still sounds more inventive than nostalgic, even on popular compositions. The musical material is extremely strong here, and a slightly melancholic atmosphere is tastefully spiced with humor and touches of Latin and French elegance. Recorded in one of the "southern" ECM studios in Swiss Lugano, this album's sound is warm and opposite to the classic ECM "cool & clear northern sound" as is usual for Oslo studio recordings. Bop and swing roots are both used as an excellent basis for injecting more life into "Trios", making it different from lifeless swing-less ECM recordings.

Not a revolutionary release, but a great album, one of those bringing fame to the ECM catalog.

Recorded in a Berlin studio for a small audience, this album is possibly the most rewarding Carla Bley album ever. Her 10-piece ensemble includes such different artists as NYC jazz veterans trombonist Roswell Rudd and drummer Andrew Cyrille, rock pianist Terry Adams, ex-Soft Machine members Hugh Hopper on bass and Elton Dean on alto and British tenor player Gary Windo.

There are just four compositions, but all them are full of melodies, humor, brassy big-band arrangements and lots of Canterbury rock atmosphere. The album's closer, a 19+ minutes long " Spangled Banner Minor And Other Patriotic Songs" is a mix of national anthems (incl "Deutschland über Alles" and "La Marseillaise") brewed in one funny cocktail full of free-jazz and humor.
