Time for music

Luckily we live in an age where there is plenty of recorded music to listen to and just as fortunately Paul Motian appeared on many, many recordings. At times like these the best way to remember a great musicians such as Motian is to listen some of the wonderful music he left behind. Now where to start?

Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Marilyn Crispell or some of Paul Motian's own recordings?

Completely agree!

Couldn't agree more Jazzfan! Went home last night and pulled out all my Bill Evans vinyl - planning to spend my day off on Friday in the recliner doing my own personel tribute to Motian!

Happy & safe turkey-day to all!

Thanks for the recommendation - wasn't familiar with that recording, but all those artists are among my favorites. Definitely going to check it out!!
