Complete event services and concert management for the Boston area jazz scene.
Fifty years ago clarinetist/saxophonist Jimmy Giuffre formed his influential yet under-appreciated trio with bassist Steve Swallow and pianist Paul Bley. The group split after a gig in which they made 35 cents each. The music of Bley's then-wife, Carla, was central to the group. On this Piano Jazz, Carla Bley and Steve Swallow join McPartland for trio renditions of Carla Bley originals "Ida Lupino and "Ad Infinitum.
