Paul Motian on “Everything I Love,” 1967
This transcription of Paul is from my very favorite recording of him, Keith Jarrett‘s “Life Between The Exit Signs.” Recorded in May of 1967, it was the first recording of Keith Jarrett together with Paul and Charlie Haden.
1960–1967 were extremely fertile years for Paul’s development, but unfortunately, this is the only recording I know of from the years 1965–1967.
In the early 1990s, I had an opportunity to play this track for Paul. You can read his comments elsewhere in this blog in “Paul Motian interview II: recordings & reactions.”
