5.0 out of 5 stars Ironic and provocative renditions of Christmas carols, 3 Dec 2009

This review is from: Carla's Christmas Carols (Audio CD)
Ironic, quirky, provocative, sometimes melancholic other times funny renditions of Christmas carols. If you like Carla Bley and Steve Swallow then you won't be disappointed. There is some good playing here, above all Carla on piano and celeste, with a beautiful interplay with the brass section. If you are looking for Christmas music that is not the usual Christmas stuff, then get this one! You won't go wrong! It's a pity that most likely you will listen to this music only in December.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carla's Christmas Carols, 9 Jan 2010
This review is from: Carla's Christmas Carols (Audio CD)
For those of us who like a change from the sickly sweet or pop Christmas sounds this is a welcome and beautifully crafted album. The wonderful jazz sound gives these versions of Christmas Carols another dimension and are a welcome addition to my Christmas and jazz collection of cds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original jazz genius - perfect for writing cards and wrapping presents, 19 Jan 2010
By 
Tim (Leeds, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Carla's Christmas Carols (Audio CD)
Original compositions & well-loved traditional songs arranged for brass quintet, bass and piano. Sometimes it sounds like a medieval brass ensemble, sometimes like Duke Ellington, sometimes a little avant-garde, but the different colours all blend together beautifully.
