I found a nice, long rant by Paul Motian about why he changed the pronunciation of his last name. I'm going to read that. I'm not sure about the music. I'll take requests for songs that Motian plays on, inspired or was inspired by. Post here in the comments, on the Facebook page or email unclepaulsjazzcloset@gmail.com with your requests before the show.

Please note the special time for this week only: 11am- 1pm EST.
