Carla Bley Trio at Jazz Dock in Prague

From the Prague Post:

Carla Bley is a highly regarded jazz composer and pianist, and her trio with bassist Steve Swallow and tenor saxophonist Andy Sheppard is a first-rate unit. Her upcoming concert at Jazz Dock, as part of the Jazz for Four Continents project, is an especially small venue for her, since she can pack major halls in other nearby European capitols. But this simply means that Prague is lucky that way.

Dirty Projectors’ Nat Baldwin Takes Inspiration From Connecticut’s Anthony Braxton

Anthony Braxton

From the Hartford Courant:

Those connections are easily traced back to Baldwin’s time in Connecticut, where, as a student at the Hartt School, he got turned onto the music of Wesleyan composer Anthony Braxton. (Braxton’s son, Tyondai, himself a composer and performer, was a senior at Hartt when Baldwin was a freshman.) Pretty soon, Baldwin was spending more time in Middletown than Hartford, and eventually withdrew from Hartt. While sitting in on Braxton’s classes at Wesleyan, Baldwin started playing his teacher’s graphic scores with the Middletown Creative Orchestra, a group of like-minded musicians from various backgrounds.
