Composer/pianist, ex-wife of Paul Bley, one of the first to popularize her works. Inspired by the eclecticism and Britishness of Sgt Pepper, she sought to combine pop, jazz, and the European tradition in her writing: she progressed from those early&short, quirky, melodic jazz tunes to writing extended works that could combine Kurt Weill, Duke Ellington, Gustav Mahler, and rock at the drop of a hat. Longtime champion of avant-garde indie labels, via the New Music Distribution Service.
