Cecil clark:People who neverTell anyone anythingAlwaysJust letting them knowFlooding memory with pumpsTalented teams of onionsInside the goalOf the mouthItself. Roomer:Escalator over the hill. Operasinger:Thickening old hotelDoubletalk with singleEntendreThe giggling flyOf a for pleasureLost foreverTo a flashingThat insistsOn a quist.

This somewhat early album from Carla Bley is one of her excursions into the realm of musical theater. The words were written by Paul Haines. While I must admit that I enjoy the lyrics in the context of each song, I never had the patience to attempt to figure out what is going on in the story. Musically, Bley divides her big band into subsets, with some players bleeding over into different groupings. Primarily, there's the big band. Then we get the clambering trainwreck of the title piece - "Escalator Over the Hill" often sounds like a drunken cabaret band - charging onward heavy-handedly, only to stumble and nearly fall every now and then, with multiple singers singing one-liners from within Cecil Clark's Hotel Lobby. Phantom music returns, and Carla Bley repeats the phrase "Stay Awake! Please! Stay Awake!" in increasingly frenzied tones. Now, I am aware of the impact which rock had on theater in the 70's. As an opera, this album evokes the musical "Hair" much more closely than it does, say, Mozart. The wailing, agonized voices we hear on the disc doubtless sound exactly as intended, but the style has unsurprisingly fallen out of fashion in recent decades.
