Exclusive: Phelan Burgoyne Trio: “Yazgol – the unrecorded compositions of Paul Motian”
On Friday 29th January Phelan Burgoyne Trio returns to Sands Films Studio to record their new album to be released in April 2021 and called “Yazgol – the unrecorded compositions of Paul Motian”. The gig will also include a Live Q&A with Steve Cardenas in New York City.
Paul Motian was an American jazz drummer and composer born in 1931. Motian played an important role in freeing jazz drummers from strict time-keeping duties.He first came to prominence in the late 1950s in the piano trio of Bill Evans, and later was a regular in pianist Keith Jarrett’s band for about a decade (c. 19671976). Motian began his career as a bandleader in the early 1970s. Perhaps his two most notable groups were a longstanding trio of guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Joe Lovano, and the Electric Bebop Band which featured the drummer working mostly with younger musicians doing interpretations of bebop standards. Steve Cardenas was the guitarist on the Electric Bebop Band and will be talking live from NYC to Phelan Burgoyne…
