Released in 1963, this was Monk's 26th album (second with Columbia.) This is a CD re-mastered copy full of bright stickers telling me what an important album it is. Which it is.
I must admit to something: so much of this jazz sounds like...jazz. I'm not sure I'm learning the difference between the schools, the trends, the regions, the decades. I don't know if I'm any closer to learning anything meaningful about jazz than I was when I started.
Sure, I can identify different elements and discuss specific characteristics, but the vocabulary is still eluding me.
This album is cool, baby, cool.
Am I getting the hang of it?
