-max roach was recommended to me by thomas at the record exchange. definitely a good purchase
-I will stand by thelonious moog as a good, fun interperetation of monk. and as a response to a comment made on-air by greg
a few weeks ago, I think that though lacy's versions may be artistically superior, they suffer from taking themselves too seriously. monks music isn't in any way serious. if you listen to the recordings he made for blue note, they all have a kind of bouncy lightheartedness that I see in the moog reinterperetations. or maybe I'm just really entertained by moogs doing other peoples' songs.
