Chick Corea, Eddie Gomez, Paul Motian: Further Explorations

"With the unexpected death of the drummer Paul Motian, last November, 'Further Explorations' (Concord), an album intended to be an homage to the pianist Bill Evans, has become a double tribute. Motian, an integral member of Evans's landmark trio of the early sixties, joined the pianist Chick Corea and the bassist Eddie Gomez (a longtime Evans associate whose tenure never coincided with Motian's) for a stint at the Blue Note in May of 2010, the results of which are captured on this bracing double-disk set" (Steve Futterman, "Jazz Notes," New Yorker, 1/30/12).
