Social Studies is an album by American composer, bandleader and keyboardist Carla Bley recorded in 1980 and released on the WattECM label in 1981. The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 3 stars stating Social Studies shouldn't be missed: a bookish cover masks some wonderfully wry music. Bley's risk-taking serves her quite well on Social Studies, an unorthodox and adventurous pearl that is as rewarding as it is cerebral. Highlights of this LP range from Reactionary Tango an abstract take on Argentinian music to the melancholy Utviklingssang to the angular quasi-hard bop number Walking Batteriewoman.
