Live-streaming Tyshawn Sorey, Joe Lovano and Bill Frisell at the Village Vanguard tonight!

For those that are interested, this configuration goes way, way back... sort of.
Paul Motian originally assembled the trio with Bill and Joe and released a few records. These records are by far some of my favorite records.
Tyshawn is probably the greatest drummer alive. I’m sure he put this together in honor of Paul and purposefully placed himself in this very specific position. Unfortunately Paul left such a heavy imprint in this configuration that nothing else really fits. I really commend Tyshawn for coming in and doing “Tyshawn” and not “Paul”. He really came in trying to sound as different from Paul as he could. But yeah, I watched the Friday set and found it very difficult to detach from the records.
I still thought it was an amazing set, but I also suggest whoever has not to go listen to the Paul Motian trio records.
Got a link?
I think it’s usually $10 on the village vanguard website.
https://villagevanguard.com yep and you can still purchase them to watch, $10 for a little over an hour set, mostly playing Paul Motian tunes.
How is it? I love Tyshawn Sorey, but Lovano and Frisell have never really been my favorites.
It wasn’t my favorite. Maybe it’s just me, but they didn’t seem to have much chemistry. I was zoning out a lot during the show
