Album Review

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
