Brilliant Corners - Thelonious Monk
    #1871340 - 09/01/03 04:00 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

This record is just top. Monk's playing is just unbelievable. The thing about Monk is that whoever is playing on the record, the whole thing is so much Monk's own music that the other players all sound like Monk. Coultrane doesn't sound like Coultrane, he sounds like Monk playing through Coultrane's head through Coultrane's horn.

And some of the sounds on it, the horns on the title track, the damped-bass drum on the last one, just trip me out. I don't know if it's the way they're recorded or what, but they do. They get inside me head and buzz.

My other Monk favourite is Monk's Music (I think...; anyway, the one with him sitting in a wheelbarrow thing), although to be fair I haven't listened to others nearly enough.

Any other Monksters care to vent? :grin:

What kind of music is Monk?

What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Is BeBop like funky, pre-hip hop music or something? I don't know exactly what it is.

A brief history of bebop [Re: Murex]
    #1876721 - 09/03/03 06:43 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Nah, bebop emerged in the 40s as a reaction to the prevailent big bands. It features small groups of players, quartets or quintets usually, and as they were smaller they allowed more space for soloing. The music was more improvisatory, more complex melodically and harmonically than the big band music, and more irregular, so you couldn't dance to it. Therefore it took jazz into becoming more interesting to listen to, as opposed to being simply "dance" music. The two famous names associated with it are Dizzy Gillespy and Charlie Parker, trumpeter and alto-saxophonist. But Monk had a lot to do with it from the pianist's point of view, and his style was a lot more unique than most.

My flatmate brought the album back from canada, I haven't had the opportunity to listen to it yet, but I've heard one of monks other albums before and it was pretty fucking amazing on nitrous.

Monk is a genius.

If his playing isn't enough he's also one of the best writers. Anyone in love with "Naima"? Insanely phenomenal and great chords to jam to.
