“Mostly Monk” respectfully takes the music of Thelonious Monk and lifts it to a new level with imagination and masterful creativity. Also includes compositions by Dudley, Ornette Coleman, Billy Strayhorn, and Jimmy Rowles.
Patrick Cornelius' music for Chordless Jazz Ensemble, released on Whirlwind Recordings. Features Johnathan Blake (drums), Michael Janisch (bass), Nick Vayenas (trombone), and Mark Small (tenor saxophone).
The music is mostly swinging and features a large number of cover tunes mixed with Sean's distinctive compositions. Overall it's a sunny swinging CD with familiar sounds and tradition mixed with new ideas.
