Carla Bley - Dining Alone

Carla Bley - organ, piano, tenor saxophone, vocals
Michael Mantler - trumpet
Carlos Ward - alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, flute
Roswell Rudd - trombone
Bob Stewart - tuba
Richard Tee - piano, electric piano
Cornell Dupree (tracks 1 & 7), Eric Gale, (tracks 2, 4 & 6) - guitar
Gordon Edwards - bass guitar
Steve Gadd - drums
This reminds me a lot of the music Michael Mantler was writing at the time, c. 1976.  Though I would guess he was more likely being influenced by Carla Bley.  He's a good composer, she's a great composer.
