Thelonious Monk

Since I'm not a professional writer it's easy to dismiss anything I might type about Thelonious Monk. I have no particular insight into his career or his life. Nothing to reveal about "'Round Midnight" or his singular style on piano. Instead of typing, let me try telepathy.

I'm not going to tell you that you're going to love Monk's music. Maybe you've already made up your mind. Do a quick personal inventory. See if there's a little room for something fun and serious, something surprising and traditional. Go ahead, give it a shot.

With a computer it's easy to dig in. Spell it right the first time, "Thelonious Monk." Then listen, especially the solo stuff. Read some of the history or stories about Monk. Watch a documentary. At least watch until you find the scene on a bus in Copenhagen, I think, when Johnny Griffin shows his new pants to Monk. So worth it.

Stay with it.

If You Build it: They Will Come. Right?

Things are looking up for the Jazz88 Speakeasy.  What once started as an idea is starting to bear some fruit. Our fearless Web Designer, Gil and our Web Master, Lev are putting all the pieces together for a fun, interactive and original Jazz88 Speakeasy. Not only will it look cool it will feature such content like: Artist Interviews, Jock Bios, Samples of original KSDS programs including full-length programming, Jazz Birthdays, the Jazz88 Blog, Videos, Jazz Live Gallery, A connection for the 'In-Crowd' Members and much much more.  Next week, we start building the club...Right now, we're working on that secret password...be sure to knock twice to get in. It's hip...It's the Jazz88 Speakeasy. Stay tuned.
