Nice to see Monk here. I always wonder why I don''t hear Monk and many othere in the "jazz clubs" of SL.

Monk's the only jazz musician that can make me laugh.

My emergency backup son plays jazz violin and thinks Monk is nuts... "His playing hurts my brain."

That's two reasons to love him.

 

Could it be that clubs have a lower threshold for dissonance than we do? I don't hear Coleman, Mingus or Thad Jones / Mel Lewis much, either.

Well, I don't think there are many jazz lovers in SL. I never heard Coltrane, Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins either.
I heard them in my own club when I was DJ there.  The club is gone now. I never could find the right audience.

Yes, Monk was nuts but definitely a genius
