TRIBUTE TO PAUL MOTIAN (1931 - 2011) 1

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

1961 Bill Evans - Waltz for Debby (with Paul Motian & Scott LaFaro)

Recorded live at the Village Vanguard, New York, New York on June 25, 1961. Originally released on Riverside (9399). Includes liner notes by Joe Goldberg. "This was Bill Evans' first trio. The album was the fourth and final effort from the unit — LaFaro died in a car accident just ten days after the live date at the Village Vanguard from which Waltz for Debby and its predecessor, Sunday at the Village Vanguard were taken. The loss of LaFaro hit Evans hard, and he went into a brief seclusion. When Evans returned to the trio format later in 1962, it was with Motian and noted bassist Chuck Israels." Wikipedia

I do accept as true with all of the concepts you've introduced in your post. They're really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
