Ugly Beauty

Ugly Beauty
Andrew Stern-- guitar
Jef Charland-- bass, VCR
Jared Seabrook-- drums

This guitar trio takes the music of our hero, Thelonious Monk, and puts it thru a meat grinder-- no disrespect intended. Tunes of his that you know (or dont) are given incredible twists, sometimes to the point of not recognizing them (or recognizing them). Ever need some punk Monk? Give this a listen.
