Bebop & Beyond music CDs This CD contains one of the best Thelonious Monk tributes that have come out since the pianist/composer's death in 1982. Mel Martin (heard here in top form on tenor, soprano and flute) leads Bebop & Beyond through nine of Monk's most difficult originals, and his arrangements (which use the versatile guitarist Randy Vincent in Monk's place) are consistently inventive.

Martin (switching between soprano, alto, tenor and flute), trumpeter Warren Gale, pianist George Cables, the distinctive and creative guitarist Randy Vincent, bassist Jeff Chambers, drummer Donald Bailey, Vince Lateano on drums and timbales and guest percussionist John Santos are all in fine form on fresh versions of such numbers as "Wheatleigh Hall," "Manteca" and "Diddy-Wa-Diddy." ~ Scott Yanow Bebop & Beyond: Warren Gale (trumpet, flugelhorn), Mel Martin (soprano, alto & tenor saxophone, flute), Randy Vincent (guitar), George Cables (piano), Jeff Chambers (bass), Donald "Duck" Bailey (drums), Vince Lateano (drums, timbales) and John Santos (congas, bongos, percussion). Guest Artist: Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet, vocals, rhythm-stick).
