Motion is an album by jazz saxophonist Lee Konitz, recorded in 1961 for Verve Records. It features drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Sonny Dallas. It is regarded by many as Konitz's finest album. The 1990 CD issue expanded the number of tracks from five to eight; a 1998 release then expanded this to 38, although most of the additional tracks were from different recording sessions with drummer Nick Stabulas instead of Elvin Jones.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The recording date won't help the listener to understand this album; it is not hard bop. Superficially it's an exemplar of Cool Jazz, but Motion was really a one-off chemical reaction between Konitz and Elvin that has more in common with contemporary ad hoc free improv collaborations than anything going on in 1961. And like many other albums that don't resolve easily in their historical context, its stylistic palette is narrow.
