An early favorite for best live release of 2011, Live at Birdland documents extended improvisations on a half-dozen jazz and pop standards over two nights in December 2009. Lee Konitz, Charlie Haden and Brad Mehldau had done something similar in Los Angeles more than a decade ago, resulting in a pair of albums. This time they’re joined by Paul Motian, with whom they’d each worked previously—anywhere from the decade or so Motian and Haden logged together with Keith Jarrett in the ’70s to Mehldau’s first encounter with Motian a few months earlier at the Village Vanguard.
