Paul Motian passed away

Such a terrific drummer and musician...creative right through his life. He didn't sit back on his achievements but formed new bands with creative line-ups right into his later years. The Electric Bebop Band was something!


Here's a great trio performance

I've already made my statement on the Keyboard forum, but will just add here that it was the rhythm section of Motian and Haden that really fired me up in the 70's to want to become a jazz player.
