Recorded by T.S. MONK on TAKE ONE
Blue Note: CDP 7 99614 / Recorded October 16, 1991
The T.S. Monk Sextet's albums on Blue Note display this group's dedication to performing a repertory of modern jazz classics. Their three albums feature works by Monk's father, pianist THELONIOUS MONK, one of jazz's most original composers. There are also works by trumpeters IDREES SULIEMAN (who worked with Thelonious Monk and Coleman Hawkins) and TOMMY TURRENTINE (who worked with Jackie McLean and Max Roach), and another great Jazz Messenger pianist, WALTER DAVIS, JR. who has his own album on Blue Note. RONNIE MATHEWS, pianist with T.S. Monk, has recorded albums with Freddie Hubbard, Max Roach, Roy Haynes, Louis Hayes and Sam Jones, as well as his own albums as a leader.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Alto Sax, Soprano Sax

This dynamic uptempo chart seamlessly combines long, flowing half-note lines with percussive two note stabs and impressive unison pentatonic figures to form a great taking-off point for solos.
SOLOS: The soloist plays over a C minor chord throughout. It's a good place to start for a player who doesn't have much experience with such fast tempos or for a more experienced musician who wants to improve modal jazz skills.
