Misterioso album for sale Product Description

Misterioso album for sale by Thelonious Monk / Thelonious Quartet Monk was released Oct 16, 2012 on the Universal Japan label. Recorded live at The Five Spot Cafe, New York, New York on August 7, 1958. Misterioso CD music Originally released on Riverside (1133). Misterioso buy CD music Includes liner notes by Orrin Keepnews. Misterioso songs Digitally remastered by Joe Tarantino (1989, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California). Misterioso album for sale Digitally remastered using 20-bit K2 Super Coding System technology. When the quartet featured on MISTERIOSO was burning up the Five Spot back in 1958, they came under attack from fickle fans and critics, seemingly for no other reason than that they weren't the 1957 model (featuring John Coltrane, Wilbur Ware and Shadow Wilson). But the wit, wonder and vigorous interplay of this quartet enliven these performances to such a degree, it's impossible to discern what the big deal was about. This is an amazing band. Listening to tenor virtuoso Johnny Griffin on "Blues Five Spot," it's clear that for him Monk's music was almost second nature. Like fellow tenor giant Sonny Rollins, Griffin understood the rhythmic impetus behind Monk's melodies, and his penchant for witty interpolations allowed him to work a ditty such as "The Sailor's Hornpipe" into the conclusion of his unaccompanied chorus. Also, if you listen to how he and Monk reprise the head (and introduce "Let's Cool One"), you'll note the saxophonist's ability to voice his lines in such a way as to suggest different saxophone ranges, and even multiple horns when playing in unison with the pianist.   ...See Full Description
