Hi every-body,
I'm a french student in musicology, and I'm going to work for two years (ouch!) on Carla Bley's Escalator Over The Hill record. I'm trying to contact some of the guys who were part of this project (to ask them a few questions), but I couldn't find an official website or something else to contact Mr Don Preston.

Could someone help me please ?
Thank you so much !

That's one of my favorite records. Best of luck, and let us know how the project goes!

Well, I've seen this one here in France and got it on an old VHS ! Nice performance but they did play only parts of the EOTH music...
For me, it has to be the full band !

cheers
