.: interlúdio :. Thelonius Monk with John Coltrane


“Monk and Coltrane complemented each other perfectly. The results of this successful music aliance were beneficial to both. In this setting, Monk began to receive the brunt of a long-overdue recognition. On the other hand, Coltrane´s talent, set in such a fertile environment, bloomed like a hibiscus. `Trane´s comments in a Down Beat article (Setember, 29,1969), clearly describe how he reveres Monk: “Working with Monk brought m eclose to a musical architet of the highest order. I felt I learned from him in every way – through the senses, theoretically, technically. I would talk to Monk about musical problems and he would sit at the piano and show me answers by playing them. I could watch him play and find out the things I wanted to know. Also, I sould see a lot of things that I din´t know about at all”. 

Um disco com músicos deste nível dispensa comentários. Gênios sem encontrando e nos dando o melhor de si através de sua música, e que música, meus queridos. A lamentar apenas sua curta duração, meros 37 minutos, mas lhes garanto que são 37 minutos preciosos.

John Coltrane – Tenor Sax
Coleman Hawkins – Tenor Sax
Thelonius Monk – Piano
Wilbur Ware – Bass
Gigi Gryce – Alto Sax

Silêncio: Gênios em ação !!
