Fr + Sa 15 + So Apr I jeweils 21 Uhr – Aufsturz Monks Casino – Das Gesamtwerk Alexander von Schlippenbach – piano / Axel Dörner - trumpet / Rudi . THE COMPLETE WORKS OF MONK. Alexander von Schlippenbach: Piano Axel Doerner: Trumpet Rudi Mahall: Bass Clarinet Jan Roder: Bass Michael Griener. Coming on to 35 years together, his trio combines a remarkable freshness with a reserve and patience that is lacking in some of the more nascent and less road-tested improvising ensembles. Monk's oeuvre isn't very extensive - the core repertoire of his compositions would fit easily on a single disc - and yet there are a dozen or so pieces that are rarely played and a handful that had never been recorded before this. The piano is percussive, yet richly voiced, showcasing melodic figures here and there while the bass and drums mark time and add colour to the proceedings. Er glaube wohl, durchaus auf der Höhe der Zeit und im Zentrum musikalischer Entwicklung zu stehen, sagt Schlippenbach. He stripped it down and created. Monk's Casino in Heppenheim. Pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach was joined by Die Enttäuschung--a phenomenal German quartet featuring trumpeter Axel Dörner and jiggly-legged bass clarinetist Rudi Mahall that's recorded plenty of Monk tunes on its own over the years--to record a version of every single known composition of Monk over 70 of them. Some surprises are in store when Alex and Axel switch instruments, as well as when Alex' s wife Aki Takase is added on toy piano. Invece cavalca da 40 anni l' improvvisazione radicale europea, avendo fra l' altro fondato la storica orchestra Globe Unity. Manchmal verkürzt er achttaktige Formen auf sieben oder fünfeinhalb Takte, und doch wirken diese Stücke organisch. Although his music was, in its time, less well known than it is now, Thelonious Monk's oeuvre is one of the greatest achievements in jazz. The music's been done again since then and these recordings date from June and February This is as serious a reading of Monk's oeuvre as has been attempted by those more expected to do this sort of thing. Manches Arrangement hat eine skurrile Note und macht offenbar, wie sehr der Humor bereits in Thelonious Monks Musik angelegt ist.

But at the same time to refrain from becoming overly puristic or precious about it, not treating it as some museal mausoleum for the entombment and enshrinement of Monk's dead music, but retaining the liveness and the essentially subversive spark that makes Mr.
