Product Notes

This is a clarinet trio that redifines and reinvents these Monk tracks with freshness and strong musical skills. The players are all amazing, coming from the West Coast scene. Ben Godberg on clarinet, and then Scott Amendola on drums and Devin Hoff on bass (both the rhythm section from the Nels Cline Singers). 'What makes this disc so fine is the way the trio plays these tunes, all of which were written at and often feature a piano at the center. With spirited versions of "Little Rootie Tootie", "Four in One" and "Teo", how can they go wrong? An excellent offering' (Bruce Lee Gallanter, DOWNBEAT MUSIC GALLERY) 'the material is great, and the musicians are great. Pure joy, pure fun! What more do you want?' (freejazz-stef.blogspot.com) 'Amendola, Goldberg, and Hoff make the most of Monks book, distilling the essence of the music while making it uniquely their own' (SIGNAL TO NOISE)
