EIGHTH ANNIVERSARY MEGAPOST!

Thelonious Monk - Thelonious
(recorded "live" in Paris, December 1969)

Ye Olde Blog turns 8 today, and sort of like Thelonious in '69 (if so flattering a comparison be permitted), it's a little bit older and a little bit slower, and yet we still manage to amuse ourselves now and again, as Thelonious does with his mysterious outro at the 3:48 mark. See how he allows himself the briefest of smiles at 13:32 in this video:



Nota Bene: We're officially entering our "late period" now, so don't be surprised if things get weird. To wit: it looks like tickets are still available for this Thursday at Lincoln Center!

Thanks very, very much to all and sundry for the kind words. Jimi: we'll do another one of those zipped mixes, eventually... Certainly before the end of the Obama administration :)
