The second 3-CD set drawn from the CMS Archive Project of more than 500 concerts at Woodstock’s legendary Creative Music Studio between 1973 and 1984, also features some jazz luminaries not typically associated with the CMF avant-garde/world music sphere, such as the late percussionist/composer/ bandleader Paul Motian, and the great bebop alto saxophonist Lee Konitz (who actually helped pioneer “free jazz” in the late 1940s with Lennie Tristano).
