In Memory of Paul Motian
by The Vinyl Side of Midnight on Sunday, November 27, 2011 at 6:28pm
Paul Motian passed away last week. He will be best remembered
(historically, at least) as being one third of the ground breaking Bill
Evans Trio, a group that redefined the aesthetics of the piano trio. Motian
would sometimes imply the beat rather than state it outright, accenting
bassist Scott LaFaro's counter-melodic approach, massaging the fluidity of
Evans' pianistics. Motian went on to play with many others over the years,
never straying far from New York, never straying far from the art form he
so loved. Tonight we'll play a dozen or so cuts featuring Paul, as band
leader, as side man. And a handful of loose associated tracks of
contemporaries and those inspired by Paul Motian.
