KFJC Music Reviews
Recording (1968-1971) of Carla Bley???s jazz opera using Paul Haines??? trippy poetry as libretto.?? These words wash over and provoke an emotion, but defy analysis.
Well played and sung by many fine artists.?? Some who were (or became) more prominent are Carla Bley (organ), Don Cherry (trumpet), John McLaughlin (guitar), Gato Barbieri (sax), Linda Ronstat (vocals), Sheila Jordan (vocals), Paul Motian (drums), Charlie Haden (bass), Viva (Andy Warhol celebrity).?? Startlingly original compositions from Carla Bley include eastern influences, calliope, etc.
Language on side 2, track 5.?? Last track of side 6 repeats ??? a flaw that was intentional?
