Tribute: Around 1974


Keith Jarrett Quintet Tour Flier San Francisco 1974

To celebrate its rerelease in vinyl and its digitization, I'll be featuring Paul Motian's ECM album 'Tribute'. I found the above flyer in Paul Motian's 1974 notebook. I'll read from that and blend in some Keith Jarrett and other music Paul was playing around 1974.
