The soon to be released songbook The Compositions of Paul Motian  Volume 1 1973-1989 is the blueprint for this week's show. I'll start with Abacus and play the songs in alphabetical order until time runs out. This is likely to be a multiple part show!

  1. I've be hoping for this programming! Thank you, thank you! I didn't know about the book going ahead but I'm going to be saving up! Abacus, Blue Midnight, Dance, Johnny Broken Wing, Lament, Monica's Garden, Tuesday Ends Saturday, Victoria... He's up there with Wayne Shorter, Monk, Messiaen, Andrew Hill, Poulenc, Grachan Moncur III... Evocative of an inner infinity-point, with a uniquely-colored logic. A major voice! Put it through Frisell's sustain and there's hardly a more moving sound...


Thanks for your comment!
