Paul Motian / Jason Moran / Chris Potter: Lost in a Dream

Read "Lost in a Dream" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Pianos have rarely been featured in drummer Paul Motian's ensembles, though his years with Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett have surely left an impression on his approach to balladry. Lost in a Dream is a collection of Motian ballads recorded at the Village Vanguard in early 2009, with Motian in the intriguing company of pianist Jason ...

Paul Motian / Chris Potter / Jason Moran: Lost In A Dream

Read "Lost In A Dream" reviewed by Martin Gladu

Flitting like drunken fireflies, luminescent tones flutter out of a saxophone, tracing capricious, spasmodic lines. In the background, washes of cymbals and softly-brushed snare sweeps weave discretely fine-spun rhythms around a shy piano that is busy rocking drowsy chords to sleep. Fragmented, almost to the point of abstraction, the music nevertheless expands, ebb and flowing placidly ...

Paul Motian / Chris Potter / Jason Moran: Lost in a Dream

Read "Lost in a Dream" reviewed by Ted Gordon

Consider this album a blind date of sorts: Drummer Paul Motian-meets-pianist-Jason Moran, introduced by the matchmaker, saxophonist Chris Potter. Though Motian had worked once with Moran in 2006, this collaboration is a stunning example of the versatility and mastery of Motian's veteran technique. Recorded over a week of concerts at New York City's Village Vanguard, Motian's ...

Paul Motian: Lost in a Dream

Read "Lost in a Dream" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Paul Motian torna a registrare al Village Vanguard. E lo fa con un trio, formazione che esalta al massimo grado la sua poetica asciutta, spigolosa, immersa nei silenzi. Il gioco trigonometrico che scolpisce e attraversa lo spazio è sempre stato un motivo di stimolo, di riflessione, di approfondimento per il lavoro del batterista. Un'attrazione iniziata con Bill Evans e ...

Paul Motian / Chris Potter / Jason Moran: Lost in a Dream

Read "Lost in a Dream" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Drummer Paul Motian seems to fit very comfortably into any musical situation, and elevate it. With a career that spans more than five decades--and seeming to begin at an early pinnacle with pianist Bill Evans' trio on the legendary Sunday at the Village Vanguard (Riverside Records, 1961)--Motian has, as a sideman, augmented musical visions galore. A ...

Paul Motian / Chris Potter / Jason Moran: Lost In A Dream

Read "Lost In A Dream" reviewed by David McLean

A drummer whose inventive approach to percussion has produced one of the most recognizable and in demand sounds in the pantheon of jazz, Paul Motian's revolutionary playing has seen him approach the kit not as a rhythmic backbone, but as a tool for subtlety and soundscape creation. Lost In A Dream, Motian's set of midnight ballads, ...

Drummer Paul Motian makes another stellar recording with his newest trio of pianist Jason Moran and saxophonist Chris Potter. Soon to be eighty, the drummer--who doesn't venture out of Manhattan these days--displays full command over musical expression and emotion on this live recording.

It's impossible to listen to Motian's trio work at New York's ...

Paul Motian / Chris Potter / Jason Moran: Lost In A Dream

Read "Lost In A Dream" reviewed by John Kelman

Though he's led larger ensembles, drummer Paul Motian seems to be most comfortable--or, at the very least, most interested--in working within the particular confines and freedoms of the trio. Whether it's his quarter century old group with guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Joe Lovano, or the early saxophone/bass/drums trio of Dance (ECM, 1978) and Le Voyage ...
