About the album
Paul Motian's trio with Bill Frisell and Joe Lovano received ecstatic reviews for "I Have The Room Above Her", Motian's ECM 'comeback' album of 2005, and the recording was a "critic’s choice" all around the world. Appropriately so: the trio was formed at ECM, way back in 1984, and its sound concept is a most apt match for the label's production values. Luxuriating in the sensuality of sound while also keenly attuned to each other in the improvisations, Motian, Frisell, and Lovano play a gravity-defying, floating music that is at all moments free and intensely melodic. Album features original compositions by Motian, plus Thelonious Monk's "Light Blue" and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s "This Nearly Was Mine".
