Bley, Carla - Tropic Appetites Tropic Appetites
Jazz Used - LP 1 WATT
1974 German Laminated Gatefold Original. "“Following Their Superb Escalator Over The Hill, Composer Carla Bley And Poet Paul Haines Once Again Teamed Up For Tropic Appetites, A Somewhat Different, But Equally Compelling Effort. The Lyrics Revolve Around Trips To Southeast Asia And Bley Makes An Inspired Choice For Lead Vocalist By Enlisting The Extraordinary Julie Tippetts Who Had Attained Rock Stardom In The Late '60s (As Julie Driscoll) In Brian Auger's Trinity. After A Powerful Introductory "Overture" Led By The Still Incendiary Gato Barbieri, The Hothouse Atmosphere Of The Recording Is Established By The Next Song, "In India," With Its Humid, Surreal Lyrics. Bley Consistently Provides Rich, Imaginative, And Varied Underpinnings For Tippett's Crystalline Vocal Work. From The Ferocious And Angry "Enormous Tots" To The Yearning "Caucasian Bird Riffles" To The Delightful Singsong "Funnybird Song" Featuring Priceless Vocals From Howard Johnson And Bley's Very Young Daughter Karen Mantler (Who Would Go On To A Career Of Her Own), The Music Is Strong And Memorable Throughout. All Of The Musicians Are In Top Form, But Special Mention Should Be Made Of The Dream Rhythm Team Of David Holland And Paul Motian. Their Tonal Colors And Supple Interplay Is A Major Factor Of The Success Of This Album. Tropic Appetites Is One Of Carla Bley's Greatest Successes.” Brian Olewnick, AMG.... more details

Bley, Carla - Social Studies Social Studies
Jazz New - LP ECM W 11 WATT
Sealed 1981 Original. Features Carlos Ward, Michael Mantler, Tony Dagradi, Gary Valente, Joe Daley, Earl McIntyre, Steve Swallow And D. Sharpe. “Not Everything Carla Bley Has Done Has Been Artistically Successful, But Much Of It Has -- And The Imaginative, Good-Humored Pianist/Organist/Composer Certainly Deserves Credit For Daring To Take So Many Risks. Bley's Risk-Taking Serves Her Quite Well On Social Studies, An Unorthodox And Adventurous Pearl That Is As Rewarding As It Is Cerebral. Highlights Of This LP Range From "Reactionary Tango" (An Abstract Take On Argentinean Music) To The Melancholy "Utviklingssang" To The Angular Quasi-Hard Bop Number "Walking Batteriewoman." This Time, Bley Leads A Nonet, And The Star Soloists Include Carlos Ward (Soprano And Alto Sax), Tony Dagradi (Tenor Sax, Clarinet), Gary Valente (Trombone) And Frequent Allies Michael Mantler (Trumpet) And Steve Swallow (Electric Bass). Bley Doesn't Allot Herself Much Solo Space, But The Results Are Appealing When She Does.” Alex Henderson, AMG.... more details
