A cosmic journey.
Producer MAST aka Tim Conley has released a new album reimagining the work of iconic jazz pianist Thelonius Monk.
Thelonious Sphere Monk‘s sixteen tracks traverse well known cuts (‘Straight No Chaser’, ‘Round Midnight’) alongside more obscure (‘Misterioso’, ‘Bemsha Swing’).
The LP features eight musicians including Makaya McCraven on drums and Chris Speed on Tenor Sax.
An original, hand painted print by Japanese artist Tokyo Aoyama adorns the vinyl album cover.
