USA, 1979, experimental big band

The Carla Bley BandMusique mécanique

Is it the best thing Bley has done? No. Does it push boundaries, which is why we love her so much? Not really. But this is a solid album. Remember she’s not trying to be avant-garde here. She’s taking more of a prog jazz rock route, which is fine, too. This is a great collection of tracks that have a lot of variety among themselves.
