Customer Review

on 10 November 2007
If you could hand pick two men to re-produce the music of Thelonious Monk it would have to be Stan Tracey and Bobby wellins.With a combined age of 150 they roll back the years and sound as good as they did on "Under milk wood" over 40 years ago.Stan Tracey is the only pianist who's style is even quirkier than Monk himself and with Wellins on tenor sax it's a real throw back to when monk and Charlie Rouse complemented each other so well all those years ago.The tunes you will be familiar with,Tracey all spikey and jagged with those wonderfully quirky little right handed soirees up the keyboard and Wellins with his customary style of short expressive phrases which take many interesting twists and turns.
This album is a reinterpretation and a tribute all in one.The live sound quality from the Bull's Head at Barnes (South London) is fine and with most tracks running to 8-10 minutes long both men are afforded the time to fully express their ideas.
For all fans of Tracey,Wellins,Monk & Rouse.
