Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-09-22 
Eclectic Thelonious Monk covers in styles from punk to funk to straight jazz. When they run out of obvious, campy ideas, they turn to slow but straightforward jazz with a few "avant" noises in the background or sudden outbursts of noise; these are less successful. Fun overall. #1, 11 and 12 broach Naked City territory.

1*- Punk blasts
2*- Oozy funk!
3*- Alternates between cock rock and straight jazz
4- Slow psychedelic feel with thick guitar solo
5- Quiet, mysterious "Misterioso"
6- New Orleans horns, sort of. Slow and repetitious
7- Straight, with loud swinging ending
8- Sparse, with thunderous outbursts
9- Calm start, gets chaotic and squiggly with guitar
10- Slow, horn-led
11*- Danceable new wave - crazy and thumping
12*- Speed-metal jazz
