Carla Bley - Dinner Music (WATT, 1977)

 

Ms. Bley has a great sense of humour, in music and visually  She told me once in an interview that when the artwork for the cover of Dinner Music was sent to Japan for issue there, they spent hours removing the wine stains on the napkin.

Ha! Funny story! :) 

Talk about "lost in translation"!

From what period is this ? Olinga is Dizzy´s composition , Right ? In 1981 Dizzy performed it with Milt Jackson as a guest Artist at Montreux.

About 1974 - Yes, the album kicks off with ‘Olinga’ by Dizzy. Cedar Walton is on piano - alas. Fender Rhodes.

Well it´s natural I also prefer to hear Cedar Walton on acoustic piano. But on the other hand, the things that annoyed fans of Artists from the acoustic era when they started to use Fender Rhodes and Electric bass instead of acoustic piano and double bass , now are something like history. That was the time then. As much as guys from the swing era like Benny Goodman and Roy Eldrige started to "use" some of the bop Elements in the late 40´s, guys like Dizzy  in the 1970´s used Electric bass and Electric guitar for their touring bands, so if I look at it now, I got a much more philosophical view About it than I had then. Then I said if I want to hear Electric stuff I hear Miles with all those guys Michael Henderson, Reggie Lucas, Pete Cosey, or Herbie Hancock Headhunters and so on, and if I want to hear Diz I want to hear him with an acoustic Group. 

Now I really can enjoy stuff like "Diz at Montreux" 1981 with Bags, doing "Olinga"....., anyway tunes like "Olinga" "Manteca" "Tin Tin Deo" "Brother K." you also can Play Electric and it sounds good.

Good to hear - gives confidence in the quality of the forthcoming Gearbox box set.

Because I’ve been largely “off the reservation” I wasn’t aware of the huge LP set that’s coming in September. This lost session is one of the very best Tubbs I’ve heard.

Other than a mention in July’s ‘Jazzwise’ there has not been much mention of it. I’ve ordered and will post opinion once it has landed Chez Moi.
