Thelonious Monk: Palo Alto

Thelonious Monk: Palo Alto

There are no bad recordings of pianist Thelonious Monk together with tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse. Well, maybe two—when they were in a top-notch group assembled in the late 1940s to back a so-so vocalist named Frankie Passions, who recorded two lackluster pop songs. But starting in the fall of 1958, at New York's Five Spot, they ...

Thelonious Monk: Palo Alto

Read "Palo Alto" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Earth-shattering? The best live Thelonious Monk recording ever? Who knows? Probably not. But it is Monk, so Palo Alto, comes to us with all the scholarly fandom brouhaha we accord these wonderful little things that gratefully drop in our laps from troubled time to troubled time.

Art Blakey had the propulsive, authoritative personality of his drums. Paul Desmond was urbane and laidback, just like the sound of his sweet-toned alto. There are, of course, exceptions to these sorts of correlations. ...

Palo Alto: Music By & For Lennie Tristano & Lee Konitz

Read "Music By & For Lennie Tristano & Lee Konitz" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Attenzione! Hot off the presses from Italy: A quartet of ambitious jazz musicians perform the music of “cool” bop acolytes and astute visionaries - saxophonist Lee Konitz and pianist Lennie Tristano. And other than a few original compositions, this group casts an enlightening bop aura to pieces such as Tristano’s “Ablution” and works by Konitz. Essentially, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
