An unmissable opportunity to experience one of the landmark artists in modern jazz history. Inspired by the work of Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, and Erik Satie, pianist/composer Carla Bley first made her mark in the 1960’s, penning tunes that were recorded by Gary Burton, Jimmy Giuffre, and Charlie Haden. Her seminal 1971 triple album jazz-rock opera Escalator Over the Hill, featuring artists ranging from Linda Ronstadt and Jack Bruce to Gato Barbieri and John McLaughlin, cemented her reputation for stylistic diversity and restless creativity.
With a remarkable body of work stretching across dozens of albums, Bley visits Turner Sims with her long-time trio to present music from their ECM Records releases and more.
