Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Not to be confused with the other Monk album of the name Misterioso, this one is a live set (which is maybe why they put "recorded on tour" in the title!) – done in quartet format with Charlie Rouse, and either Larry Gales or Butch Warren on bass, and either Ben Riley or Frank ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful Columbia work from Thelonious Monk – a record that has as much warmth and charm as it does visionary modernist moments!

Takeo MoriyamaSmile ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... About November 15, 2019
An album with a sweet title, but a very hard groove – a stone stormer from Japanese drummer Takeo Moriyama – put together with these soaring reed lines that almost make the whole thing feel like an early 70s album from Elvin Jones! There's a very spiritual feel to the music at times ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
