The Swallow Quintet: Into the Woodwork

Read "Into the Woodwork" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Carla Bley and Her Remarkable Big Band: Appearing Nightly

La giovane donna che distribuiva sigarette al Birdland e che pare sia riuscita a venderne un pacchetto a Paul Bley, nonostante questi fumasse notoriamente la pipa, ha continuato da allora a comporre musica con una dedizione assoluta, arrivando a creare uno dei corpus compositivi più importanti della storia del jazz.
