Wow.  That is one heck of a lineup!  Any thoughts on the album?

It's a keeper for me.  More melodic than free, great interplay between all.  I had trouble identifying Jacob vs Bill at times.  Craig Taborn is reserved.   I think they're all giving Jacob a lot of room to express himself.

It may be odd that my favorite tracks here are not the many Monk compositions, but the standards he interprets.  It may not be a word often used to describe Monk, but I found this version of "Darn That Dream" to be rather touching; his playing sounded quite sincere.  "Meet Me Tonight In Dreamland" is kind of sweet (another term not frequently associated with Monk).  It is sweet in the obvious affection he has for the tune and it's sweet that, given a free hand to play/ record in this setting pretty much anything he desired, he chose to present this nearly forgotten ditty from days gone by.  If Thelonious Monk thought this song was worth his attention, it's definitely worth our attention too,  And "Nice Work If You Can Get It" -- that tag at the end, whoa, does that ever take things in a new and unexpected turn.
