Paul Motian convened this trio for a special project at New York’s Village Vanguard in February 2009. From a week of concert recordings, Motian and producer Manfred Eicher subsequently selected the material presented on Lost In A Dream. The album puts an emphasis on balladry, using ballads as vehicles for profound soloing and group playing. In these touching performances of Paul’s ... Read more in Amazon's Paul Motian Store

Product Description

Broadway is like a magnet for the young Paul Motian, born in 1931. The wonderful shows of the composers Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Jay Livingston cast a spell over him and fascinate him all of his life. Broadway, the cornucopia, lavishes on the world the most beautiful harmonies and melodies, which jazz musicians adopt as their standards. On 5 CDs Paul Motian and a truly top-class lineup among them Bill Frisell, Joe Lovano, Charlie Haden, and Chris Potter play the highlights of the Great American Songbook. Paul Motian wanders through the big shows of his youth, surprises with his unorthodox selection and convinces with highest musicianship, attracting every curious listener with his magnetic energy and thrilling musicality.

Fatntstic musicians, fantastic recording (normal...it's a Winter & winter CD) and good packaging (again normal ...it's a Winter & winter CD). These live sets are magic. It happens sometimes... a group that breaths at a same time, all musicians connected and the music is something more than the addictions of the musicians involved. Like in the Bill Evans Village Vanguards recordings, or Miles Davis "kind of Blue" or other famous live sets. I'm not saying that we are talking of a set at the level of this examples, but the music is really good, so delicate, so bright, so perfect. Bill Frisell is at his top, and so Joe Lovano and Paul Motian and Lee Konitz. The last two CD are not at the level of the first three, the musicians are also great, and so the music, but the first three recording are really masterpieces.
The packaging as ususal is really good, th solution find to package 5 CD is brilliant, first of all because it remains a std size CD and also because it doesn't touch the Winter & Winter style and graphics, probably one of the best packaging style in the musci industry.
Buy it! You'll earn more value than the price you'll pay
