'Paul Motian Plays MJQ'
A new Mosaic box, a recent Lincoln Center hat-tip, and now a week's worth gigs led by the wily drummer--the bluesy poise of the Modern Jazz Quartet is still with us, no doubt. Motian's view of repertory tilts towards the idiosyncratic--check those gorgeous Bird, Bud, and Broadway skews--so he's got some kind of personalization planned. Can't wait to hear Craig Taborn slipping into John Lewis's tux.
