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

Editorial Reviews

Jazz drummer, percussionist and composer Paul Motian first came to prominence in the late 50s with the pioneering trio of pianist Bill Evans. Motian has since worked in an array of contexts, and has led a number of groups. He is one of the most influential modern drummers, having played an important role in freeing the drummer from strict time-keeping duties. This set features six of Motian s classic albums at a special low price.

Drummer Paul Motian has been playing fine jazz in groups under his own name, as a valuable addition to other groups, and in duo settings, for many years. This collection brings together his work for the Black Saint/Soul Note label during the years 1983 through 1995. As with other sets in this great series, there's no booklet-only whatever information that's on the back of the outer box, or on the back (and oftentimes in very small font) of the original album covers. The remastered sound is very good throughout-clean and open. The discs slip bare, into a cardboard holder, and all the discs are inside a substantial lidded box. These are the original releases-there's no bonus tracks appended to any album.

The first album, "The Story of Maryam" (1983), finds Motian playing with several musicians in a group that had been together for a couple of years. Besides Motian, there's Jim Pepper-tenor sax, Joe Lovano-tenor/soprano sax, Bill Frisell-guitar, and Ed Schuller-bass. Playing with people familiar with Motian's music is a real plus here. This album, compared to some of Motian's ECM work, is relatively unknown. The playing here isn't typical of Motian's quieter work when he recorded for ECM. What we have is an album that's relatively visceral sounding-especially compared to his earlier work. The tunes at times are almost in a modern/bop style, driven along by Motian's work as well as the band. Frisell's impressionistic guitar is all over the first track, "9 X 9", and plays the same role throughout the album.
