Theme:
Redo: The High Priest Thelonious Monk

A couple of the many Monk albums in Paul Motian's collection.

Since I couldn't make a podcast last week and you can't listen to too much Monk and readings from Paul Motian's autobiography, I'm going to repeat last week's show. I'll feature a couple of Paul Motian's albums along with his own interpretations of Monk's compositions. And some readings from the Motian autobiography.
