Jason Moran is one of the brightest original young voices in jazz. On this WNYC taping, he discusses Monk and plays an incredible version of Crepuscule With Nellie.

Customer Comments

Outstanding! Hard to think of other artists who are daring enough to break down Monk's thematic material and re-compose rather than play the tunes more or less straight through. As Moran alludes to in the interview, Monk is such a commanding presence that it's almost impossible not to hear the man in the music.
