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, featuring 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.

Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
The 3/4 bridge of this uptempo swinger sets it apart. Everything else is smooth sailing, and it's a great chart for some serious hard-bop soloing. It also challenges the drummer by requiring him to make a smooth transition in and out of 3/4 and often to set up a rhythmic figure for the band while making this transition.
SOLOS: The changes are classic bebop, in a good key (E-flat), and full of II-Vs.
TOMMY TURRENTINE (1928-1997) A fine, lyrical trumpet player and a particularly gifted composer of ballads, Tommy Turrentine never achieved the fame of his younger brother, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. Tommy had important gigs with Benny Carter, Mingus and others and worked in big bands led by Count Basie, Billy Eckstine and Dizzy Gillespie. He was also a sideman on dates led by Sonny Clark, Lou Donaldson, Jackie McLean, Horace Parlan and his brother.
