Carla Bley cancels Montreal appearance


Montreal’s Orchestre National de Jazz (ONJ) and the city’s jazz festival (FIJM) regret to announce the cancellation of Carla Bley and Steve Swallow’s appearance on July 2 at the Monument national. The concert, however, is not cancelled and will be presented as a tribute to the guest composer, forced to bow out for health reasons. The ONJ informs us thatChristine Jensen will direct the orchestra that evening in a program of pieces all penned by Bley. What’s more, it has secured the presence of a cast of guest soloists, the likes of pianists Marianne Trudel, Gentiane MG, Marie-Fatima Rudolf, Helen Sung, as well as trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, and a couple of surprise guests to be added.
