Teatro Asiogli Correggio

Carla Bley is performing at a little jewel of a venue in a small northern Italian town and JMI has tickets for the show.  Unfortunately we cant't be there. If you want the tix email us.  If you don't know Carla's career please get to know it. Words of warning: it's not for the unadventurous listener. Carla's composition Musique Mecanique III will be featured on JMI-2, titled Ray Angry One.  Carla's heard Ray's version and likes it.  High praise from the high priestess.
