Southern Flavor - Blues

Author Comments

"Blue Monk" is a jazz standard written by Thelonious Monk that has become one of his most enduring tunes.
This is part of my "Jazz Masterclass" project.
This track contains the backing track (with slight reharmonization) and theme (played twice in the beginning and one time in the ending + repeating 3 times the last 4 bars).
Tempo is 84 bpm.
Tonality Bb
Not over squished/ compressed/ limited, so you can record on top on it and add the desired compression.

Track sequenced, performed, recorded and mixed by Mihai Sorohan in 2010.

I've been going through a big monk phase lately so it was a nice surprise to hear this in the weekly tops. I've got nothing negative to say soro. thanks for doing this.

also, if you take requests do epistrophy. tis my favorite of his :P

sorohanro responds:

:)) Nice phase you got there :))
Anyway, for now just the simple things, then the more complex.

Wonderfull. I wish I had this on a CD.

It's really great. It's not one of those head-bleeding metalmash things we listen to 24 hours a day.

sorohanro responds:

Well, you can download and put it on a CD :)
