TRIBUTE TO PAUL MOTIAN (1931 - 2011) 8

This is the eighty album of a 15 series, giving a beautiful view of the career of one of the greatest drummers in jazz

1989 Paul Motian - On Broadway, Vol. 2 

"The quartet of tenorman Joe Lovano, guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Paul Motian digs into nine show tunes from the 1930s and 40s, reinventing them in colorful fashion. The key to the rewarding project is Frisell, whose versatility and wide range of highly original sounds make the overall results sound quite unique. Among the highlights of the memorable set are unusual versions of "Liza," "They Didn't Believe Me" and "Last Night When We Were Young." ~ Scott Yanow / Wikipedia
Recorded at RPM Studios, New York, New York in November 1988.

Paul Motian (drums);  Joe Lovano (tenor saxophone); Bill Frisell (electric guitar); Charlie Haden (bass).
