I cannot thank you enough for posting this album. I have been searching for it for years, but to no avail. What a fantastic album, I just heard Monk's theme "Reflection" interpreted by Sonny Rollins on the radio and remembered the production by DON FAGEN on this shared album here, so I'm glad to change my damaged vinyl for this wonderful collection I found on your fine site. I used to play this to death at one time, but haven't heard it in quite awhile.
I stumbled upon it here and thank you for the opportunity to spin it once again. Producer's Note - by Hal Willner. So, instead of trying to come up with something as clever at the time, we made it the working title for this album. Somehow it stuck; and somehow it seems appropriate. The idea for the album came soon after Monk passed away in At all the tribute Jai Besoin De Toi - Julio Iglesias - Julio-24 Chansons I attended, only musicians from the jazz world were represented.
It didn't seem quite right. Though Monk's music is categorized as jazz, it transcends the limitations of categories. I kept thinking about how far Monk's influence has ranged. For example, when NRBQ performs, rarely does a set go by without the band playing at least one Monk composition.

Though it's difficult for me to remember the mid-eighties for lotso reasons I think this might have been my first introduction to Monk's music. I mean I found this early on after my cousin played Willner's 'Lost in the Stars' for me. I didn't really know what to make of that album - big names playing music that was so foreign to me When I found this CD at a local record store and read the names listed down the cover, I couldn't resist.
