Speaks his mind on music & movies!
This was the first tune I heard from Thelonious Monk and if there was ever an instant for falling for music this was it. Right from Monk’s fantastic opening piano on through the tune. I never heard piano like that. It was off kilter but on it’s own kilter at the same time. It’s on Monk time. Unique to CB’s ears. It still does it for him.
The accompaniment is perfect. John Ore bass, Frankie Dunlop drums and Charlie Rouse sax. Rouse kicks in and they all continue to swing. Monk backs off and lets Charlie have the floor. The sax was another big reason this song grabbed me. Charlie never played better. Monk comes back in and does his thing.
This tune got into my blood and introduced me to one of my favorite musicians. Needless to say I have devoured everything he’s done.
