Monk’s Music In Nashville

Last night I had the pleasure of playing in another ensemble at the Nashville Jazz Workshop.  The group was a septet dedicated to the music of Thelonious Sphere Monk.  We performed six of his tunes, including two which were previously unknown to me: Four In One and Little Rootie Tootie.

The septet featured some original arrangements and the alto saxophone playing of Denis Solee, as well as the bass playing of the Workshop’s co-owner Roger Spencer.  I’ve posted some personal playing highlights below, with yours truly on the tenor saxophone.  I hope that you enjoy listening.
