Teodross Avery – Harlem Stories: The Music of Thelonious Monk
(WJ3 1024. CD Review by Peter Vacher)
This is the ninth ‘name’ album released by 47-year old Californian tenor saxophonist Teodross Avery; that said, it’s a first for me. The Berklee-educated Dr. Avery, having long ago familiarised himself with Monk’s music, sets out here to put his own stamp on ten of his hero’s venerable compositions.
