H. R. Greenberg claims that

'You cannot really describe Monk's "bum" notes as bum. They are part of
an extraordinarily sophisticated musical mesh, transgressive, defying
expectation, unsettling and curiously satisfying. '

Yes. Unfortunately, he doesn't swing.

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

I belong to a very good Internet music service. For a fixed monthly fee,
with hundreds of thousand selections, members can download as many
individual cuts or complete recordings as they please. Selections are
organized by genre. The jazz area is enormous with more than 35 albums
by Monk alone. The classical section highlights chamber music often from
small eastern European labels.

If anyone is interested, send me a note and I
