"Eddie Korvin's Blue Rock Studio on Greene Street in Soho was a great place to record because it was so comfortable for musicians. Eddie was relaxed, there was a room upstairs for privacy, and the studio felt more like a living room. Eddie's studio and the players on this album just happened to be available on these two days March 27th and 28th, 1976 in NYC - Steve Lacy and Enrico Rava, both living in Europe but passing through NY at this time. The chances of getting all these people together at one time would be one in a million and this was that time.

They were all in my life at the time - Steve Lacy, Kenny Davern, and Sheila Jordan going back to the late 1950's and early 1960's; Patti Bown, Paul Motian, and Enrico Rava from the 1970's; Wilbur Little, Tyrone Washington, Louisiana Red and Jordan Steckel from the time of the recording. The continuity that I had with Steve Lacy until his passing in 2004 and still have with Sheila Jordan, Enrico Rava, and Kenny Davern is very emotional for me.

BLOWN BONE was the name of a jazz suite conceived in the late '60's but not recorded until 1976. The personnel were exactly right and they all just happened to be at the same place ten years after I wrote it. BLOWN BONE is about New York City and the beauty, the energy, and the struggle. BLOWN BONE, CEMENT BLUES, STREET WALKING and BETHESDA FOUNTAIN was the conceived order of the suite.

IT'S HAPPENING is the first movement of a later jazz suite, HEARTBREAK AND REFORMULATION written around 1974, dedicated to Albert Ayler.

BLUES FOR THE PLANET EARTH and YOU BLEW IT were originally conceived for symphonic wind band (and performed at the Peace Church in Greenwich Village in 1968) as my reaction to garbage scows polluting New York Harbor. If that desecration provoked such anxiety in me at that time you can imagine my anxiety now! Sheila took out the 'S' and 'F' words and improved on the lyric as she has always done on my music. Of course the version here with a sextet is scaled way down from the originally conceived version. The important part for me was always the programmatic message of the earth calling out to human beings to alert them to the impending crises.

I've recently listened to the original vinyl recording, which was released only in Japan in 1979. I still have the same feeling - that the players and the music converged in a way that made it noumenal.

To separate the two 1976 sessions, the previously unissued 1967 recording of LONG HOPE has been inserted. This was the prologue to my first jazz opera: THE GOLD RUSH. The lyrics are shown on a screen while the band plays and a Native American Chief smokes a peace pipe and gestures: 'People, we were put here on Earth to take care of each other........'"-Roswell Rudd, from sleeve notes


Artist Biographies:

"Stephen Paul Motian (March 25, 1931 - November 22, 2011) was an American jazz drummer, percussionist, and composer. Motian played an important role in freeing jazz drummers from strict time-keeping duties.

He first came to prominence in the late 1950s in the piano trio of Bill Evans, and later was a regular in pianist Keith Jarrett's band for about a decade (c. 1967-1976). Motian began his career as a bandleader in the early 1970s. Perhaps his two most notable groups were a longstanding trio of guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Joe Lovano, and the Electric Bebop Band which featured the drummer working mostly with younger musicians doing interpretations of bebop standards.

Motian was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. He is of Armenian descent. After playing guitar in his childhood, Motian began playing the drums at age 12, eventually touring New England in a swing band. During the Korean War he joined the Navy.

Motian became a professional musician in 1954, and briefly played with pianist Thelonious Monk. He became well known as the drummer in pianist Bill Evans's trio (1959-64), initially alongside bassist Scott LaFaro and later with Chuck Israels.

Subsequently, he played with pianists Paul Bley (1963-64) and Keith Jarrett (1967-76). Other musicians with whom Motian performed and/or recorded in the early period of his career included Lennie Tristano, Warne Marsh, Lee Konitz, Joe Castro, Arlo Guthrie (Motian performed briefly with Guthrie in 1968-69, and performed with the singer at Woodstock), Carla Bley, Charlie Haden, and Don Cherry. Motian subsequently worked with musicians such as Marilyn Crispell, Bill Frisell, Leni Stern, Joe Lovano, Alan Pasqua, Bill McHenry, Stéphan Oliva, Frank Kimbrough, Eric Watson and many more.

Later in his career, Motian became an important composer and group leader, recording initially for ECM Records in the 1970s and early 1980s and then for Soul Note, JMT, and Winter & Winter before returning to ECM in 2005. From the early 1980s he led a trio featuring guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Joe Lovano, occasionally joined by bassists Ed Schuller, Charlie Haden, or Marc Johnson, and other musicians, including Jim Pepper, Lee Konitz, Dewey Redman and Geri Allen. In addition to playing Motian's compositions, the group recorded tributes to Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans, and a series of Paul Motian on Broadway albums, featuring original interpretations of jazz standards.

Despite his important associations with pianists, Motian's work as a leader since the 1970s rarely included a pianist in his ensembles and relied heavily on guitarists. Motian's first instrument was the guitar, and he apparently retained an affinity for the instrument: in addition to his groups with Frisell, his first two solo albums on ECM featured Sam Brown, and his Electric Bebop Band featured two and occasionally three electric guitars. The group was founded in the early 1990s, and featured a variety of young guitar and saxophone players, in addition to electric bass and Motian's drums, including saxophonists Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, Chris Cheek, and Tony Malaby, and guitarists Kurt Rosenwinkel, Brad Shepik, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Steve Cardenas, Ben Monder, and Jakob Bro.

In 2011 Motian featured on a number of new recordings, including Live at Birdland (with Lee Konitz, Brad Mehldau and Charlie Haden), Samuel Blaser's Consort in Motion, No Comment by Augusto Pirodda, and Further Explorations with Chick Corea and Eddie Gómez. Bill McHenry's Ghosts of the Sun was released - by coincidence - on the day of Motian's death. Motian's final album as bandleader was The Windmills of Your Mind, featuring Bill Frisell, Thomas Morgan and Petra Haden.

Motian died on November 22, 2011 at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital of complications from myelodysplastic syndrome."
