Steve Kuhn chronology

Motility is an album by American jazz pianist and composer Steve Kuhn and his band Ecstasy recorded in 1977 and released on the ECM label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Ken Dryden awarded the album 3 stars stating "This is one of Steve Kuhn's more unusual studio sessions, which was recorded for ECM in 1977. At times, the pianist seems less like a post-bop musician and more like someone dabbling in new age music".[2]
