Dan Tepfer & Paul Motian
Word gets around: if you can engage a free-spirited elder such as Lee Konitz, you can probably engage a free spirited elder such as Paul Motian. Pianist Tepfer is wily when it comes to such maneuvers: eschewing the kind of expressionism that presents itself as a storm, he develops measured motifs until they're ready to overwhelm, as heard on last year's Five Pedals Deep. Interaction is paramount to his art, and he's not afraid of leaping into a wormhole or two.
