It was always thought Coltrane and Monk's legendary collaboration was not properly documented. Just the beautiful "Ruby My Dear", two other studio tracks and some poor quality recordings from the Five Spot Club. But now there is this. I jumped for joy. Monk's solos make me laugh out loud especially on Blue Monk and Coltrane's playing is awesome. Coltrane once said that getting lost while playing a Monk tune was like falling into a lift shaft. Evidence is littered with lift shafts but he is right on top. Nutty is outstanding too with both musicians clearly enjoying themselves.
If you want another laugh, check out the reviews on the amazon.com site. Kenny G indeed!
Just to clear up one thing. I had no problems downloading this on to my computer (using Real Player) or transferring it to my Creative mp3 player. But then again shame on the people who try to protect this especially considering it was recorded by Library of Congress for all mankind! And what a gift it is.
