178: “Lonely Woman” by Charlie Haden and Paul Motian, featuring Geri Allen

Wouldn't wanna meet THESE three in a dark alley.Legendary drummer Paul Motian‘s constant sizzle keeps “Lonely Woman” moving, while bassist Charlie Haden and pianist Geri Allen move around in the space he creates.  It’s an Ornette Coleman cover, with a ribbon on top.

I first heard Motian’s name in relation to the Bill Evans Trio.  He’s also done great stuff with guitarist Bill Frisell.  He even played with Thelonious Monk for a little while.  Be certain to check out Paul Motian’s other promiscuous percussive relationships if you dig this one.

Listen and enjoy.
