Plays Monk (Amendola / Goldberg / Hoff): Plays Monk (Long Song Records)
Label: Long Song Records    
Released in: Italy    


"Featuring Ben Goldberg on clarinet, Devin Hoff on bass and Scott Amendola on drums & production. Devin Hoff and Scott Amendola are the great rhythm team for the Nels Cline Singers. Devin, Scott & clarinet wiz, Ben Goldberg, are also members of Nels Cline's New Monastery / Andrew Hill project. On this rich offering, the trio plays ten Thelonius Monk compositions in their own quirky way. "Skippy" is taken at a brisk tempo and has an infectious, happy vibe. Very nice to hear this trio playing a few of the rarer Monk tunes like "Shuffle Boil" and "Boo Boo's Birthday". What makes this disc so fine is the way the trio plays these tunes, all of which were written at and often feature a piano at the center. With spirited versions of "Little Rootie Tootie", "Four in One" and "Teo", how can they go wrong? An excellent offering."-Long Song Records
