Very fine , a lot of Monk tunes here, and Geri Allen sounds very "monkish".....

Stuff Smith works when coffee doesn't!

But Barney Kessell gets shafted in the personnel listings, which is a shame because he really brought it to this one!

Haven't listened to this one in a long time. First heard it a few years after its original release. Knew that Riverside intended it as a gentle introduction to the then-thought-to-be-far-out Monk, having him play a set of show tunes. Only now do I realise that many of them are on the same changes as his then-thought-to-be-too-difficult compositions, e.g "Just You, Just Me"/"Evidence".

This one again. Their interpretations of Coleman works are very interesting to hear with piano, vibes and four horns.

Fun to hear back to back these driving, bottom-heavy sessions that share a common "inner" quartet (McCoy Tyner, Lee Morgan, James Spaulding & Howard Johnson).

On another board we had an interesting discussion about bossa nova and jazz. Some were maintaining bossa nova was jazz, others that it wasn't. I'm in the camp that it's not jazz, something else, but some very jazzy bossa nova happens and I love it. This is one of those recordings. I'm reaching for it lately--it delivers as bossa nova when I have that frequent itch, and there's some great jazz-sounding guitar and "flavor," and the recording is very very good.

Andy LaVerne Quartet - Frozen Music (SteepleChase)

Such appealing music -- and such an ugly cover.  Given the album's title, I know they're going for a blue-and-white icy look.  But, goodness, is that the best you can do?!?!  Oh well.  As the old saying goes, "You can't judge a book..."

Linking this post to another thread: Saxophonist Rick Margitza is a "Young Lion" whose music I've enjoyed for a long while.  It's nothing mind-blowing.  I just like his sound -- touches of Wayne & Joe Hen with a dollop of Getz -- and his musicality.
