A great show by a slightly unusual version of Carla's band (George Lewis? Phillip Wilson?), recorded shortly before she started adding overtly comedic songs to the set. This is simply all great charts wonderfully played and in quite good late 70s radio broadcast sound. Hugely recommended.
"As a founder and leading light of the Jazz Composers' Orchestra, as well as being a superb keyboardist, Carla Bley was at the cutting-edge of American jazz in the 1970s. Originally broadcast on WBUR 90.9 FM, this remarkable performance is a vital document of her band on its first North American tour."
