overview

An all-star cast of jazz greats come together to pay tribute to their colleague, legendary drummer and composer, the late Paul Motian, voted number one in the 2012 Downbeat Critics Poll Hall of Fame. One of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century, Motian played with Joe Lovano, Bill Frisell, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Charlie Haden, Paul Bley, and many other bandleaders, including Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh, Mose Allison, Tony Scott, Stan Getz, and Johnny Griffin.

The concert, curated by Bill Frisell and Joe Lovano, features performances by Andrew Cyrille, Ben Monder, Ravi Coltrane, Ben Street, Bill Frisell, Billy Drewes, Jerome Harris, Billy Hart, Chris Cheek, Ed Schuller, Marilyn Crispell, Gary Peacock, Bill McHenry, Greg Osby, Tim Berne, Ethan Iverson, Jakob Bro, Joe Lovano, Joey Baron, Chris Cheek, Larry Grenadier, Mark Turner, Masabumi Kikuchi, Petra Haden, Steve Cardenas, Tony Malaby, and Billy Hart Quartet (Ethan Iverson, Ben Street, Mark Turner).

 

"Paul was one of a kind: a musicians' drummer who thought about the music, not just the rhythm, and cast his own sound on everything he played... he could play anything, and with anybody." -Keith Jarrett
