Sorry about that. I was doing some "house cleaning" yesterday and forgot to reset some things.there are fantastic solos on Art Blakeys Jazz Messengers with Thelonious Monk
the record that opens with "Evidence "
Blakey is on fire on that record.......come to think of it ....Blakey is always on fire
our very own dmacc I believe has a great Blakey solo on his youtube channel but I cannot access them for some reason
I found strange that you picked up that piece. There are several reasons, the piece in itself is closer to classical music, the playing with the felt mallets, the improvisation aspect is smaller in this work...I love the drum thunder suite on Moanin
