So the book is out now, too? The same book?

Yes, but don’t be fooled—it’s in the Really Real Book, as opposed to the Real Fake Book, and certainly not the Fake Fake Book!

I think I might want to hold on to my OG copy of the Get Real Book.

The review is 10 years old.

My bad.  This review was an addendum to a New York Times review of 2019 books.  I erroneously assumed it was a recent release.

All kidding aside, it’s an excellent biography. Highly recommended! Pretty sure there’s extensive discussion of it in a previous thread.

Not to worry - it is a good book.

Read this book long ago. Very detailed and well worth reading for Monk fans.

A bit sobering to think that it's already 10 years old...seems like no more than half that...

A bit more sobering to think about the fact that WE'RE ten years older!!

I hope they address the influence of Raymond Scott's "Powerhouse" on "Epistrophy."  Too many sloppy researchers have overlooked this connection.

I was a bit astonished that some didn´t know about this book. 

I also got it as soon as it was published. It´s really very detailed and for example: I didn´t know nothing about Monk´s live in later years, didn´t know why he had stopped playing etc. and the book reveals a lot about Monk´s private live......

Is this a confirmed influence?  I'm not hearing enough similarity to make me think influence instead of coincidence.

Monk would have known "Powerhouse," and they both have this mechanized, futuristic sound. I'm sure "Powerhouse" was an influence, but I have no direct proof, though.

Sounds like a Bill Maher routine - "I don't have any proof, but I just know it's so".
