About the Album

This song is from my newly released album "Death of a Tree" which contains 10 songs. One of these songs is my humble tribute to the late great American jazz drummer - Paul Motian. A drummer I think has influenced many jazz drummers and musicians myself included. It has a mellow vibe changing constantly between major and minor and of course a short drum solo in honor of Paul Motian.
