  4. This set is a great accomplishment. The arrangements are tight and fresh. They don't wander or digress. The group is "true" to the original recordings without aping Monk's style. Scott Robinson is a marvelous presence on several instruments (one at a time). And you can't do better than Rufus Reid and Billy Drummond. I especially get a kick from hearing the Monk tunes that hardly anyone has ever recorded.

  15. Perry Robinson (1938-2018)

    A great loss. Perry frequently came to Seattle -- to visit relatives, I think. I met Perry on a few of his visits, heard him jam with various local musicians, and had some chances to visit with him. A fiery improviser and a sweet character, he will be missed by all who knew him.
