To my ears, Keith Jarrett's American Quartet, which featured Jarrett, Redman, Haden and Motian and played throughout the first half of the 1970s, took some of the musical concepts pioneered by Ornette Coleman and brought them to new places. There's a free-flowing, organic quality to this music that had a huge influence on my approach to composition and group improvisation.
