Carla Bley: The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu

Read "The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu" reviewed by Jim Santella

Founded in 2003, Carla Bley's quartet The Lost Chords interprets her music with emotional depth and superior musicianship. By adding guest trumpeter Paolo Fresu for this session, she has stumbled on a formula that emphasizes camaraderie and spirit-sharing. The five artists fuse well together through blues, ballads, lyrical arias and the occasional ruckus. Far from predictable, ...

Carla Bley: The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu

Read "The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu" reviewed by Martin Gladu

Is Carla Bley a Naive artist? The commercial exploitation of her works notwithstanding, one finds, in the simplicity and recurrence of themes; progressions and forms; and idiosyncratic style--as well as in the peculiar ponderous feel to much of her compositions, self-trained, instinctive approach to music-making and libertarian personality--many of the same features found in Naive artistry.

Read "The Lost Chords find Paolo Fresu" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Era scritto nelle stelle l’incontro tra la gran signora del jazz e il trombettista sardo. Sembrava perlomeno strano che la sofisticata, elegante, sottilmente ambigua scrittura di Carla Bley non avesse ancora incrociato la voce pura, essenziale, ricca di poesia di Paolo Fresu. E alla fine, come raccontato nelle divertenti note di copertina, complice la “soffiata“ del ...

Carla Bley: The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu

Read "The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu" reviewed by Budd Kopman

On The Lost Chords Meet Paolo Fresu, Carla Bley has composed music for her quartet, plus the outstanding Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu that is just about the ideal mixture of beauty and intellect. It is almost scandalous to write about a recording and give away its secrets to the unsuspecting listener who, in ...

Carla Bley: The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu

Read "The Lost Chords Find Paolo Fresu" reviewed by John Kelman

Once Carla Bley finds musicians she likes, she sticks with them. Bassist Steve Swallow, also Bley's life partner, dates back with the pianist/composer/bandleader to Musique Mecanique (WATT, 1979). Saxophonist Andy Sheppard first appeared on Bley's classic Fleur Carnivore (WATT, 1989). She's recorded with both on the trio Songs with Legs (WATT, 1995), but it was on ...
