Everyone loves this show. When the TV is uninspiring it's a treat to put on and let run.

This review is from: Modern Jazz Giants (Audio CD)
What you hear on this recording, ladies and gentlemen, is the result of a drugs bust about 4 years earlier. Thelonious Monk was in a car with Bud Powell when the police caught him with some substance and took his cabaret card away for several years. Record sales dived. So, when Miles Davis got together a session for Xmas Eve 1954, Prestige producer Bob Weinstock insisted that Monk play piano to help raise his profile. I love Monk, but he doesn't blend with what Miles and Milt were trying to do. His piano attack is like he's deliberately jabbing a nerve. You can almost hear Miles pulling his hair out at the wreckage. Sublime - a golden nugget. Listen out for the pause in a Monk solo that's so long that Miles starts to fill in through sheer embarrassment.

You can almost hear Miles pulling his hair out at the wreckage. Sublime - a golden nugget. The rest of the disc is another session with Sonny Rollins - try the Modern Jazz Giants album for the other tracks, including a pause in a Monk solo that's so long Miles starts to fill in through sheer embarrassment.

I bought this with some anticipation, but I'm afraid it's failed to excite me so far. Hey, each to their own.

So under-rated. This album just has something special - Nelson's arrangements I guess. In my top three jazz CDs.
