it's Motian anyway ... Mow - dee - an (sort of, you guys don't have that kind of "o" anyway, which is why "motion" was okay with him I guess)

I know there have been too many this past year (past few years really), but what can you do?  At least nowadays most jazz musicians die at a ripe old age, and at one time we were losing a lot of them at ridiculously young ages (think Bird, Trane, Brownie, Dolphy, Booker Little, Booker Ervin--and that's just a start).  I'm a big fan of a lot of guys who are up around 85 to 90+, so you know they don't have much longer for this earth.

Gunther Schuller.

 

A Proms concert this summer conducted by his student Oliver Knussen and meant to celebrate his 90th year became a memorial. They played his Seven Studies on Themes of Paul Klee. I hope some other of his compositions get revisited in concert soon.
