While the entire eight-piece band is consistently a pleasure, some of the album's most appealing moments occur during several Bley/Swallow duet passages.

Carla Bley: 4 X 4 by C. Andrew Hovan, published on November 1, 2000. Yeah, those duo discs with Steve Swallow and Carla Bley are nice, but give me a large ensemble and some Carla originals and then you’ve really got something. 4 x 4 surely is something else, perhaps Bley’s best and most charming work of the past several years. So, what’s with the title? Well, here’s the premise: pick four horns to put in front of a rhythm section of Bley on piano, Larry Goldings at the organ, Steve Swallow on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums (another foursome, right?).

Carla Bley, the dignified jazz composer, may at times be whimsical, but has never been in danger of turning fey. Her early jazz experiences with George Russell and the pianist Paul Bley, coupled with her wit and rigorous musicality, have seen to that. Bley made a single UK visit to Manchester on Tuesday, with the 4x4 multinational ensemble that recorded her latest album. This tight octet condenses all the harmonies, reveries, jokey diversions and volatile backdrops for improvisors that Bley originally developed for big bands.
