Motian Sickness

Primary Instrument:

Motian Sickness

For the Love of Sarah showcases the adventurous and singular compositional style of pioneer drummer/composer Paul Motian. The compositions find new directions through the eccentric instrumentation and improvisational conversation held between Jeff Cosgrove on drums, John Hebert on bass, Mat Maneri on viola, and Jamie Masefield on mandolin.

Each performance features an uncompromising musical connection between the musicians. The recording highlights duo conversation, dense quartet improvisation, trio sensitivity, and undeniable commitment to the musical moment. The group worked together to arrange and highlight the music’s subtle beauty.

“...from the opening moments it's like stepping into the middle of a story about a dream.” - Dave Sumner, All About Jazz

“For the Love of Sarah is brilliant!” - Jazz Notes SDP

“It was not intended but turned out one of the best tributes to our century's most outstanding drummer/composer, late Paul Motian. His genuine spirit is deeply reflected in their music.” - Kenny Inaoka, Editor in Chief Jazz Tokyo & Editor of the ECM Catalog
