Carla Bley Band-Italy (September 3, 1977)

The Carla Bley Band
Festival "Jazz ad Alassio"

Audience recording

A concert that stuck in my mind, and now that I've digitized the tape, I hope you can enjoy it.
In my opinion this edition ("The European Tour 1977") remains among the best bands Carla has ever led.

I am SOOOOO in love with Carla Bley.

Such cerebral music but never ever pretentious. Not selfish either which is kind of a drag because she has such great chops.

Gotta love that red sweater.

Thanks for posting this show.
