Paul Motian Dies at 80
By JazzTimes

Paul Motian, the legendary drummer whose shadowy, ethereal playing was one of the most singular and identifiable styles in all of jazz, died at 4:52 a.m. in New York City, as confirmed by a representative from ECM Records. He was 80; a cause of death has not been disclosed.

JazzTimes.com will publish a full obituary later today.

He was involved in what I believe was the second generation of modern jazz.  A stylist to be studied for real jazz purists.
