Art of Jazz: Carla Bley "Trios" Featuring Steve Swallow and Andy Sheppard


Mar 17, 2019
03:00 PM until 04:00 PM


Don’t miss this rare North American concert by 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 1960s, penning tunes that were recorded by Gary Burton, Jimmy Giuffre, and Charlie Haden. Her landmark 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 was recognized as a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master in 2015, one year before turning eighty. Bley will be performing with her trio featuring two premier artists in their own right: bassist extraordinaire Steve Swallow and British saxophonist Andy Sheppard. Learn more at
