One of the rare key albums cut by bassist Oscar Pettiford as a leader – an excellent 10" session for the Bethlehem label from the 50s! Although best known as a bassist, Pettiford was also a heck of a great player on the cello – which he uses here alongside bass! Pettiford's ... read more CD

Pianist Eric Reed is no stranger to the music of Thelonious Monk, but this set seems to have a special crackle that really makes it live up to its "adventurous" title! The tunes are all Monk numbers, but all seem to have some even sharper edges than usual – thanks in part to ... read more CD
