Album Review

This effort by drummer Paul Motian does not say who the "tribute" is for. Two numbers (the leader's "Victoria" and Charlie Haden's "Song for Ché") feature the trio of guitarist Sam Brown (an underrated player), bassist Charlie Haden, and Motian; the remaining three songs (a pair of Motian originals and Ornette Coleman's "War Orphans") add the second guitar of Paul Metzke and the fiery alto of Carlos Ward. Fine post-bop music that contains more energy than many ECM recordings.

Biography

Born: 01 May 1940 in Ancon, Panama

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

He had opportunities to play music while stationed in Germany (including with Albert Mangelsdorff), where he heard Eric Dolphy, a major influence on his sound. After being discharged, Ward sat in regularly with John Coltrane during "'Trane's"...
