Info for Motian in Motion

Renowned for his successful mergers between jazz and world music, saxophonist Jean-Marc Padovani here pays tribute to the great jazz drummer Paul Motian, with whom he took the chance to play in 1996. Particular regard is shown to Motian's Armenian origins, with Didier Malherbe (from the Hadouk Trio) playing duduk (Armenian flute) and a crack French rhythm team on piano, bass and drums.

"Undoubtedly one of my favourite, and least expected, albums of the year, “Motian in Motion” deserves high praise. This was obviously a project close to bandleader Padovani’s heart, and one that is a joy to experience. The warmth and passion emanating from the musicians is clear for all to hear. Thank you Mr Padovani; for producing such a thoughtful, beautiful album, and for reminding us of the treasures that the great Paul Motian bestowed upon us." (Mike Gates,
