Re: Bill Stewart
the other record I failed to mention was Lage Lund's "unlikely stories." An amazing record comprised entirely of Lage's original music.
Its also pretty interesting to hear Stewart with Ben Street on bass.
there are tons of great records on which he plays, including some great sleepers that do not receive a whole lot of attention. Marc Copland's 'new york trio recordings vols. 1 and 3 for example (volume 2 has Paul Motian on drums."
some of copland's other records feature Jochen Rueckert, another very interesting drummer who is gaining some notoriety in New York and europe.
