Lowell Davidson Compositions

From Paul Motian's unpublished autobiography:

"Sounds like worms.", he (John Voigt) said.'

Theme: 

John Voigt: Comparison & Contrast


A page from Paul Motian's autobiography.
My special guest this week is bassist and Chi practitioner John Voigt. I met John in a rather strange coincidence here in Maine. John will be up from Boston and live in the studio with music and stories from Paul Motian, Billy Elgart, Lowell Davidson, Paul Bley and, I hope, himself and his talented wife, pianist Carolyn Wilkins.
