Carla Bley - American Composers


113 pgs.
University of Illinois Press, Publ.

With fastidious attention to Bley's diverse compositions over the last fifty years spanning critical moments in jazz and experimental music history, Amy C. Beal tenders a long-overdue representation of a major figure in American music. Beal details the staggering variety in Bley's work as well as her use of parody, quotations, and contradictions. She also points to Bley's professional and managerial work as a pioneer in the development of artist-owned record labels, the co-founder and manager of WATT Records, and the co-founder of New Music Distribution Service.
