Fresh Impression. Carla Bley's 1993 recording Big Band Theory features her 18-piece orchestra playing three rather moody and atmospheric originals, plus a straightforward rendition of Charles Mingus' Goodbye Pork Pie Hat. Listeners expecting the rambunctious humor that was present in some of Bley's earlier big band albums will be disappointed, but there is quite a bit of beauty on this set, particularly during the dramatic slow section of Birds of Paradise and the strangely episodic On the Stage in Cages. Key among the soloists are trumpeter Lew Soloff, trombon. Listen free to Carla Bley Big Band Theory On The Stage In Cages, Birds Of Paradise and more. 4 tracks 49:09. On The Stage In Cages.
