Time to do my research. Where do I begin?
Great list. When considering Motian, it is hard for me not to default to the Village Vanguard albums with Evans and LaFaro (Sunday at the Village Vanguard and Waltz for Debbie). All three musicians have wonderful "touch" and exhibit a symbiotic relationship that makes these truly magical recordings.His first ECM Conception Vessel
sunday night at the Village Vanguard with Bill Evans and Scott LaFaro
live at the Deerhead with Keith Jarrett
theres a live recording on supermegs with Metheny, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden. The recording isn't good but the playing is amazing.
keith Jarrett Bop Be
Any of his albums with Joe Lovano and Bill Frissell or JF Jenny Clarke and Charles Brackeen.
That would be a great start (includes "It Shoud Have Happened a Long Time Ago"). And also the "On Broadway" set.JUMP on this at this price. I paid quite a bit more some time ago waiting for it to come back in stock.
Thanks for including Geri Allen's "Etudes." I bought that just last week. Paul Motian's playing is incredible -- much more aggressive than I've heard him play in many years. // skfI don't know about definitive, the ones I like best are:
Keith Jarrett - Treasure Island, Birth
Paul Motian - Dance, At The Village Vanguard, Trioism, One Time Out
Tethered Moon - Plays Kurt Weill, First Meeting
Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz, Explorations
Geri Allen - Etudes
Bill Frisell - Rambler
