Time and Time Again

1 rating: 5.0
An album by Paul Motian

EVEN BETTER THAN THEIR PREVIOUS OUTING

From first cut (Cambodia) to last (Time and Time Again), Motian, Frissell and Lovano create exceptional, beautiful music. It may seem muted on first hearing, but tranquil it is not! Rather, these three master musicians, attuned to listening to each other by years of playing cooperatively, are constantly adjusting their playing to echo their partners, creating unusually exciting but subtle music. There is no stand out cut on this album: rather, the ten pieces create almost a suite of mutually reinforcing --and mind expanding-- pieces. I have never heard guitarist Frissell, a notoriously catholic and adventurous player, play better than he does with these two colleagues. Lovano plays softer than he does on some of his more rambunctious albums but, as always, with exceptional music intelligence. What can be said about Motian? He is in all respects a master percussionist, skilled at indirectness and hinting, great FUN to listen to. But then all three of them are fun to listen to. Their last outing, I Have the Room Above Him, was so good that Who would have believed they could top it. But they have.
