Limited edition of T.S. Monk's 1980 release House Of Music. Livin' the Bon Bon Vie, with this classic uptempo groover. You'd hardly guess that this guy was Thelonious Monk's son, but who cares about his roots when the album grooves so hard? This Monk plays drums, not piano, but the best tracks on the record have a tight keyboard funky soul sound that's virtually a blueprint for 80s groove, lots of jazzy elements that warm things up nicely, and a catchy rhythmic pulse that never quits. The standout cut is the classic Bon Bon Vie, a dance floor groover that will never die, and a huge sample for Public Enemy, but the album also includes many other great cuts.
