Musical Archaeology: Greg Osby's Performances/Recordings from Duke to Monk and beyond
Gene Santoro, Chamber Music, June 2000
NEW JAZZ FANS often have well-intentioned questions I dread, like, "What records should I listen to?" One of my stock answers: "Thelonious Monk Plays Duke Ellington (Riverside OJCCD 024-2). You know Duke's tunes, and so you'll be able to hear what makes Monk Monk."
