    This is a Monk composition I've never heard before! Such a cool swagger interplay with piano/sax/drums.

    Thanks @EllroyJames !

    @EllroyJames do you know the "That’s The Way I Feel Now" tribute Hal Willner put together?

    It wasn't my introduction to Monk, but I gained a much greater insight into, and appreciation for, what makes Monk, Monk through the wide variety of interpretations on that record=.

    I hadn't quite picked up on just what an ear he had for catchy tunes, I had gotten stuck on the unusual harmonies. That album is almost like pop instrumentals somehow.
