Lost in a Dream ~ Paul Motian Trio

I have posted here several times about drummer Paul Motian and his music. Here is an interview with Motian that WNYC broadcast last week. It gives me an excuse to come back and talk again about his newly released trio album. The music, on which Motian collaborates with pianist Jason Moran and tenor saxophonist Chris Potter, was recorded live at the Village Vanguard last year. I'd been waiting for the record to turn up and it finally arrived a couple of days ago. I've been playing it more or less non-stop. (Susan is being quite patient!) So, I thought I would share one of the numbers the trio performs.
