Eric Reed -[|]- THE DANCING MONK -(MP3)- [Savant Records]
This wonderful recording by Eric Reed and his trio accomplish a very difficult feat—making Monk’s tunes sound like Monk, but also offering original takes on the music. What we have here is a trio at the top of their game–great music, fantastic swinging improvisations, and heartfelt ballads.
My only complaint is that the CD could have accomodated a few more tunes. Super playing and the sound, by Katherine Miller, is top notch. One of the best Monk tributes I have heard.
