Paul Motian's Notes
from solo piano rehearsal cassette 1978

I recently found and had digitized, a cassette of Paul Motian practicing piano. Fortuitously, I met and talked to Paul's piano teacher, Deborah Greene. Paul was not a natural at the piano but a dedicated student.
I'll play the rehearsal recordings for comparison to music Paul wrote before, during and after he took piano lessons.
Local artist and piano player Steve Lindsay will be on the show to help me talk about it all.
