Carla Bley (short bio)

Carla Bley (May 11, 1936, Oakland, California, United States – October 17, 2023, Willow, New York, United States), real name Carla Borg, was an excellent composer, bandleader and pianist, who artistically she adopted the surname of her husband, the also excellent pianist, Paul Bley. She learned piano and violin as a child from her father, who was a piano teacher, and gained extensive experience in musical direction when he directed the choir at her community church. She learned theory and deepened her piano technique while still a teenager before leaving for New York in 1955, where she met her husband, the Canadian pianist, Paul Bley.

Encouraged by this, Carla began to compose, providing Paul’s piano with excellent material that changed the pianist’s concept and ability to perform. Some of her early compositions were used by multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Giuffre, of whom Paul was a member in the late sixties. In 1964, with her second husband, trumpeter Michael Mantler, Bley formed the Jazz Composer’s Guild Orchestra, which a year later became known simply as Jazz Composer’s Orchestra. Two years later, Bley added a new twist to his project, helping to found the famous Jazz Composer’s Orchestra Association (JCOA), a non-profit musical organization designed to present, distribute and produce unconventional forms of jazz

By 1967, disenchanted with the path taken by most of the representative musicians of freejazz, she directed her creative energies to freely inspired music: the result was the acclaimed work “A Genuine Tong Funeral” commissioned and recorded by Gary Burton, which obtained a huge hit with her in 1967. Carla Bley composed and arranged music in 1969 for Charlie Haden’s Liberation Music Orchestra, and in 1971, she completed the work that cemented her worldwide reputation, the jazz opera Escalator Over the Hill”, a brilliant exercise in jazz creativity, with lyrics by Paul Hines and compositions by Carla Bley, was published in 1973 and won several important awards. In the ’70s and ’80s, Bley continued managing JCOA and writing and recording for her own Watt label. JCOA essentially folded in the late ’80s, but Bley’s creative life continued virtually unabated as she maintained a medium-sized big band with a fairly stable staff for touring and recording. She also worked extensively with bassist Steve Swallow, in duos and in ensembles of various sizes.

In the mid-eighties, specifically in 1985, Carla Bley wrote the music for the soundtrack of the film: Mortelle Randonnée, by the French director, Claude Miller. He also contributed new compositions to the second stage of the “Liberation Music Orchestra”, and in the last two decades of the 20th century, he recorded excellent albums, from duets with bassist Steve Swallow to his new orchestra, the “Very Big Carla”. Bley Band. He published a third album as a duet with Steve Swallow, Are We There Yet?, in 2000, and “The Lost Chords Find” with the Italian trumpeter, Paolo Fresu in 2007. One of his last works for Big Band, was the album: ” Appearing Nightly2 in 2008.

Carla Bley returned to the recording studio in 2013 with the album “Trios”, again with Steve Swallow and saxophonist Andy Sheppard; This was the first time Carla Bley recorded for the ECM label rather than her own. Her next effort for ECM, 2016’s “Andando el Tiempo,” was also in trio format with Swallow and Sheppard, as was 2020s “Life Goes On,” which was recorded while Bley was already undergoing cancer treatment. . It would be her last album. She died at her home on October 17, 2023 at the age of 87.
