The brilliant pianist and composer Thelonious Monk is 100 years old this year. It's not enough to say that his music is still alive. With its timeless density, it will never have seemed stronger, more inspiring, more modern. On the occasion of the release of New Monk Trio, Laurent de Wilde's group offers a personal and original reinterpretation of the master's repertoire.

This album offers some of the most acclaimed Monk compositions recorded in the key of Jazz Manouche. A completely different sensation and vision when listening to some of The Monk classics like "Teo", "Blue Monk", "Let's Cool One" or "Epistrophy" with a touch of swingy guitar by the hand of one of the most recognized Spanish guitarists from Manouche, Valentí Moya.

Although this is billed to Wes Montgomery, it is in fact a combination of two early-'60s LPs by the Montgomery Brothers – The Montgomery Brothers and The Montgomery Brothers in Canada – onto one disc. (Also note that it's almost entirely different from the Montgomery Brothers' Milestone double LP that also bears the name Groove Brothers, which mostly features material from their Riverside LP Groove Yard.) With Wes on guitar, Monk on bass, and Buddy on piano (Larance Marable fills out the quartet on drums), The Montgomery Brothers (1960) is a boppish set of five lengthy tracks, divided between both originals (penned by either Wes or Buddy) and standards. "June in January" is a particularly good vehicle for Wes' fluid single-note runs, while "D-Natural Blues" is one of his more enduring and good-natured compositions from the period. Buddy Montgomery, who often played the piano with the Montgomery Brothers, sticks exclusively to vibes on The Montgomery Brothers in Canada, which in addition to Wes and Monk has Paul Humphrey on drums.

Jazz / Afro-Cuban Jazz / Latin Jazz / Post Bop / Trumpet

Jerry Gonzalez has referred to himself as being "bilingual" in that he is equally skilled on trumpet and congas, in bebop and in Latin music. Gonzalez succeeds in his goal of combining the two idioms without watering down either style on this essential Sunnyside CD. The first Afro-Cuban Thelonious Monk tribute has plenty of spots for the percussion of Steve Berrios and Gonzalez, but also contains many strong solos from the leader's often-muted Miles-influenced trumpet, Carter Jefferson's tenor, and Larry Willis' very un-Monk-like piano. With the exception of "Ugly Beauty," the Latin percussion is an integral part of each performance, giving this set of Monk tunes a very different perspective that is also quite flexible. A highly enjoyable set with the highlights including "Bye-Ya," "Nutty," "Little Rootie Tootie," and "Jackie-ing."

Marvin Hamlisch - The Swimmer: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1968) [Silver Age Classics, 2006]

Marvin Hamlisch - The Swimmer: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1968) Reissue 2006

Soundtrack, Score | Label: Film Score Monthly | # FSM vol.9 no.5 | Time: 00:35:58

Marvin Hamlisch's first feature film score – written while he was still a college student – remains one of the great debuts in soundtrack history: a work of remarkable maturity, 1968's The Swimmer is rich in contrast and scope, communicating the film's uncommon emotional complexity in stunningly clear detail. Hamlisch proves a master of both style and mood, shifting effortlessly from the poignant simplicity of the main theme to the effervescent jazz cut "Easy Four/Bubbles" to the soaring orchestral flourishes of "Hurdles." Like the new generation of filmmakers who redefined American cinema in the late '60s and early '70s, Hamlisch achieves a note-perfect balance between tradition and innovation, acknowledging the past masters of movie music even as he expands the parameters of the form. Film Score Monthly's superlative reissue includes excellent liner notes and a series of stills from the film. Highly recommended.

Originally from Los Angeles but now based in Nashville to show validity, they were discovered by Chris Robinson, then of The Black Crowes, before he signed them on his label and had them open for the band on their tour.
