A fair point, fairly made Les.

This is a good 'un on which Nelson doesn't play only arranges and conducts.

Amongst others, Thad Jones (bro of Hank and Elvin), who did a lot with Count Basie, does a bit

Nice Rob

Very nice

Straight, No Chaser and Monk's Dream are my faves from that section - I'd be interested in what you think

Really very nice, especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon, following a hard morning stacking a large consignment of logs.

Isn't it just

Beautiful

This sums the lad up well:

Monk's compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations.

Monk's distinct look included suits, hats, and sunglasses. He also had an idiosyncratic habit during performances: while other musicians continued playing, Monk would stop, stand up, and dance for a few moments before returning to the piano

The Monk set is good ... although you really do need the Complete Solo Monk on Colombia which is a double.
I got Monk's Dream a couple of years ago in a double set with both mono and stereo versions. I'm not sure it was totally authorised although the packaging was fine and had extensive sleeve notes.
Can't say it's absolutely necessary to have both versions but... it's Monk ... enough said.

First listen to Benny, Ben and Barney showed it to be fine, nothing earth shattering or mold-breaking but fine enough.


In A Silent Way is an absolute classic. Played it so much in the past that I rarely do so now.

Joining in with the Thelonious love, some corking performances - Evidence & Coming on the Hudson are brilliant - Johnny Griffin is in fantastic form.

Bit too busy for me, that album.
