Carla Bley is Coming to Town
November 30, 2010   
Article's tools:

Legendary American pianist, composer and band leader Carla Bley will be treating Warsaw to her interpretations of Christmas songs when she appears at the National Philharmonic Dec. 6 as part of the Jazz Era Christmas Concert.

Bley’s music is accessible and charming and her numerous projects over the past half century have met with enormous success. Her ECM recordings are some of the most important jazz documents of recent years.

Bley released a Christmas album, Carla’s Christmas Carols, last year. The album will be given its Polish premiere at the Jazz Era Christmas Concert. The track listing features Christmas standards like “O Christmas Tree,” “Away In A Manger,” “Jingle Bells” and “O Holy Night” as well as Mel Tormé’s “The Christmas Song.” Two of Carla Bley’s own compositions—“Jesus Maria” and “Hell’s Bells”—also made it to the final cut. Needless to say, all of the above are treated to Bley’s idiosyncratic and eccentric jazz arrangements.

Bley will be accompanied by the Kunsthochschule Folkwang Brass Quintet from Wupptertal, Germany, and her longtime artistic partner, bassist Steve Swallow. This is not Bley’s first trip to Poland. She appeared with her quartet in Poznań, Warsaw and Cracow as a guest of Jazz Era in 2003.
