While I’m settling in to my new home in Victoria (and apartment hunting), I’ll re-post some episodes from the archives. This week, keeping some Peterborough connections, it’s resident ethnomusicologist/bassist and all round genius from Trent University, Michael Morse, talking about one of his most significant jazz influences—-Thelonious Monk. He has a lot of interesting Monk related stories.
You’ll hear some original Monk recordings, plus other versions of some of his great compositions. One of those is by Canadian West Coast jazz players Brian Tate, Michael Creber, Rene Worst, and Tom Keenlyside.
