Although he studied drums in the Navy School of Music in Washington, there has never been anything militaristic about Paul Motian's prolific work as a jazz drummer. In the mid-1950s, he played with a host of jazz stars including Stan Getz, George Russell and Thelonious Monk, but his major association was with pianist Bill Evans, both in Evans's trio and as a member of other groups, such as the quartet led by clarinettist Tony Scott. With Bill Evans, he developed a way of playing that mirrored the pianist's phrasing and approach, often abandoning aspects of the drummer's traditional time-keeping role

A sound poet of sorts, Swiss tenor saxophonist Christoph Irniger has gained quite a reputation for his lyrical tone and creative penmanship, more often than not responsible for the majority of the memorable repertoire he records and performs. The poetic nature of his music is owed not only to the artists that have influenced him over ...

Before discussing guitarist Julian Lage's album, some food for thought... A credible argument could be put forward to say that the jazz piano trio reached its pinnacle of perfection with Bill Evans' Village Vanguard performances of June 1961, with the trio of bassist Scott La Faro and drummer Paul Motian, and that trios led by guitars, ...

On his sophomore effort, West Coast-based pianist Dahveed Behroozi goes into a deeply atmospheric mode on Echoes. He is joined by a pair of blue ribbon sidemen in this piano trio affair. Drummer Billy Mintz, as a drummer-texturalist, is in a league with past greats Paul Motian and Jon Christensen, creating off-kilter, unsettled weather systems of ...

Esce postumo, a inaugurare l'etichetta Red Hook, questo album in solitudine del grande pianista giapponese Masabumi Kikuchi, che molti ricorderanno per le collaborazioni con Gary Peacock (epica quella del 1971, Voices) e Paul Motian, su tutte il formidabile e geniale trio Tethered Moon. Registrato nel 2013, due anni prima della sua scomparsa, il lavoro vede il ...

Se Nanni Moretti fosse nato nel 1973 invece che nel 1953, la famosa scena di Caro Diario che lo vede in sella ad un vespone per le strade vuote di una languida Roma ferragostana avrebbe avuto come colonna sonora la musica di Bill Frisell piuttosto che quella di Keith Jarrett. Perchè ogni epoca viene definita da ...

There is usually a continuous musical conversation occurring during any given session, which adds an element of spontaneity. Swiss drummer Florian Arbenz is concentrating on this concept of conversation in his upcoming releases, beginning with Conversation #1: Condensed.
