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.

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!
