Tropic Appetites is a jazz album by Carla Bley released in 1974, following her debut Escalator over the Hill. The lyrics are contributed by Bley's friend Paul Haines, based on his journeys to Southeast Asia in the preceding years. Unlike on the orchestral Escalator, the band is an octet, with Julie Tippetts as lead vocalist. What Will Be Left Between Us and the Moon Tonight 11:06. In India 1:11. Enormous Tots 6:06. Caucasian Bird Riffles 5:10. Funnybird Song 1:19. Tropic Appetites is one of Carla Bley's greatest successes one could only wish that she had continued in this vein rather than opting for the jazz-funk bands she led from 1980 forward. Track Listing.
