CARLA BLEY & THE LOST CHORDS
Carla Bley-piano, compositions, Andy Sheppard-tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, Steve Swallow-bass, Billy Drummond-drums
With her eccentric compositional talent Carla Bley has remained a fixture in the international jazz scene from an early age. In the late 1960s she wrote for the big bands of Gary Burton, Charlie Haden and Michael Mantler. Bley won important awards and founded many different groups. Her quartet Lost Chords stems from duo performances with her partner, bass player Steve Swallow. The music can be very intimate, but also full of humour and self-mockery.
