monk under the microscope

Media_httpmicroscopic_eeghb

Today is Monk‘s birthday (1917-10-10 … genius is born but it never ages). To celebrate: a brand new cover version by the Microscopic Septet (off “Friday The 13th: The Micros Play Monk” on Cuneiform cat. no. RUNE 310), and Monk’s recording of 1952-10-15 for “Thelonious Monk Trio” (Prestige 7027) with Gary Mapp (bass) & Art Blakey (drums).
