  • Disagree about geniuses being nuts - that's an unoriginal cliche! However, to those who are unaware of their own genius, those who are aware may seem... different. *laughs* I like how this rambles in places, it shows command and confidence on the musicians' part.
  • All geniuses are nut cases. Weird and wonderful. Love Coltrane's meanderings too.
  • Love it
  • The incomparable Thelonious Sphere Monk.
  • I like hazelnuts...with chocolate ....and coffee.....with Thelonious songs playing nearby
  • Nutty as a fruit cake. Bake it, man. Rich and off key as can be, he could play a swing with a tune and tap a key with a digit or two. And Coltrane fills the gap beautifully.
  • great story about the time he was in Japan and was fitted for a suit lying in bed...
  • Monk original?I doub it but anyway enjoyable
  • This isn't John Coltrane on tenor, it's Johnny Griffin.
  • I like the Basses too - waiting for Coltrane - wonder when he appears....
  • t.monk rules...
  • to StuartHaden1: but they also sooooooo different: Monk is making the gap to let fill them up while Coltrane feed with all the detail to the max to the point of no-more-room already to think ;-) But I love it. They were so different and thus completed each other.
  • viva el monje telonio
  • Just wonderful tracks . . . so glad we can listen again and again.
  • and there's another nut on that sax... John Coltrane. I'm nuts about them both.
  • Nutty as fruit cake? Or just plain nutty! The best nut is a walnut because it is rich in Omega three. This nut is easy to crack. It's by a wizard of jazz improvisation and inventiveness. His distinctive sound is instantly recognisable. Heard and saw him play years ago in London. He was a genius. The piano is in perfect order, that's just the way he plays on the keys.
  • leader!!
  • monky jazzy
  • Wonderful song.
