    Mi piace molto il suo medico e la cura per i miei animali malati. Incollare un cerotto sul mio maiale e si rimarginano guarire benedizione.

    If this is straight, I am Goldilocks...........big, bad Monk is tumblin' along and plays a song that has genius written all over it well supported by sax, drums, bass and drums. Pure jazz.

    I like the space Monk left in-between notes. The bass is cooking.

    I'm getting a big band version - interesting, even if sightly over-arranged

    So many versions of this, I am currently listening to a Monk quartet with what sounds like (the great) Charlie Rouse on tenor, clocking in at 11:28 and it's genius!

    Takes me back to the days when I listened to the Sound Systems in Allman Town, Kingston Jamaica.

    Sometimes this is taken a little slower, but this version really cooks. Love it, and love Monk
