The music of Thelonious Monk played on a Hammond organ sounds so different. Strip away the salty feints, parries and knotty clusters you know from the piano sound and add in a jaunty celebratory feel and you land right in the middle of this record. An OGD setting - organ from Gregory Lewis, guitar Kevin McNeal and drums Nasheet Waits best known for his work with Jason Moran - it doesn't take long to swing. American player Lewis takes inspiration from Larry Young recording the album at the Samurai Hotel Recording Studio last year. McNeal is particularly effective on 'Evidence' and throughout there is a lot of expansive interplay between the trio as shards of melody dance into more open play and add yet more insights into the unique world of Monk courtesy of such a lively trio that immerses itself in the sound and feel of the master.
