Recensione album

A few decades ago it was considered quite unusual for any musician to record a full set of Thelonious Monk songs. However, by the time guitarist Joshua Breakstone made this trio date, everyone seemed to be recording Monk's music and the formerly forbidding pianist-composer was rightfully considered not only a genius, but fairly accessible. With the exception of "Ruby, My Dear," Breakstone (a superior cool-toned guitarist) explores the more obscure and complex Monk tunes on this set, swinging such songs as "Work," "Eronel," and "Brilliant Corners" with ease. The trio is tight, with bassist Dennis Irwin contributing stimulating lines and drummer Mickey Roker being subtle and swinging in support. Although no longer groundbreaking, this is a fine addition to Joshua Breakstone's consistently rewarding discography.
