Paul Motian will always be known for his work in the legendary edition of the Bill Evans Trio, though he has long since established himself as a bandleader who has recorded prolifically on his own. This second volume from December 2006 sessions at the Village Vanguard feature the same band heard on the first volume: pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, bassist Larry Grenadier, plus saxophonists Greg Osby and Chris Potter. Once more Tadd Dameron's "If You Could See Me Now" is featured, though this offbeat arrangement is a bit dark and much shorter, adding guest Matt Maieri on viola. The once popular standard "Till We Meet Again" is revamped into something quite different from its original conception, featuring both saxophonists overlapping each other under a slightly off-center rhythm section. The remaining selections are all by the drummer, moving more into avant-garde territory. "Ten" is a particularly challenging piece for the players, with a jagged rhythm and a demanding theme. "Fiasco" has an intense, dissonant theme, though Kikuchi's noisy vocals prove just as irritating as Keith Jarrett's self-indulgent cries, adding little to the performance. Motian, as usual, is not one to spotlight himself. The Vanguard audience devours this powerful music, restraining themselves until each number is complete.

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976, the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman ran some kind of mad laboratory in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.

Billie Holiday, the Dark Blues

A soul drenched in blues, a broken heart and a battered body, Billie Holiday is still the ultimate representation of silk-laced suffering. A century after her birth, Lady Day is still undeniably the most iconic singer in the history of jazz music.

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.
