Had Thelonious Monk not passed away some years ago, October 2017 would have marked his 100th birthday. To celebrate, serial beat-botherers World Galaxy and Alpha Pup Records front an LP of sixteen Monk interpretations helmed by LA musician MAST. As one might expect, there’s a lot from the Brainfeeder school of thought behind MAST’s interpretations. Along with a revolving cast of musicians including Brian Marsella (played with John Zorn) and Jason Fraticelli (Taylor McFerrin), MAST’s expansive and ambitious versions would likely make the great man proud.
