What Happens When Miles Davis and John Coltrane Step to the Stage at a Thelonious Monk Performance? Qool DJ Marv Mixes Jazz
What Happens When Miles Davis and John Coltrane Step to the Stage at a Thelonious Monk Performance?
That's the question I posed while listening to a set of Jazz CDs sent to me by the people behind http://www.yourfriendorfoe.com/.
Originally conceived to be a stream/download on the Friend or Foe website, this 37 minute mix, designed to feel like an actual live Jazz club performance, is now available here for you to add to your collection.
10/10/10 is what I would give each one of these Jazz giants on that mythical scale. October 10th is also Thelonious Monk's birthday.
My son's name is Thelonious and that's him in the photo practicing piano (on a synthesizer - look at the photo frame on his left to see the concentration in his eyes). His lessons are on a real piano. Need I say more?
Just a little...I wrote a great story about this mix for their site but when the site changed, away it went and so did my words. I found a few on the music blog of a NYC man about town & here's a copy & paste:
“I hope this jazz mix is regarded as an offering of something that could possibly be an introduction to a different approach to musical creativity where instrument virtuosity, versatility, imagination, dexterity, improvisation and communication are the essential components.”
01 Thelonious Monk – “Straight No Chaser” (from Thelonious Monk In Italy)
02 Miles Davis – “Blues By Five” – (from Cookin’ with The Miles Davis Quintet)
03 Thelonious Monk – “Just You Just Me” (from The Unique)
04 Thelonious Monk – “Honeysuckle Rose” (from The Unique)
05 John Coltrane – “Straight Street” (from Coltrane)
06 Miles Davis – “I’ll Remember April” (from Blue Haze)
07 Thelonious Monk – “Liza (All The Clouds’ll Roll Away)” (from The Unique)
