Paul Motian, 1931-2011

Perhaps you already read this piece: it was posted on the classroom homosote: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/04/arts/music/jazz-records-inspired-by-paul-motian.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=motian&st=cse

Here is a photographer’s reminiscence: http://www.npr.org/blogs/ablogsupreme/2011/11/23/142680423/dinners-and-drum-music-a-friendship-with-paul-motian?ft=1&f=104014555

An typical excellent performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaY1GVeHqKw

Best of all, a lucid essay (with a bootleg clip): http://dothemath.typepad.com/dtm/the-paradox-of-continuity.html
