Thelonious Monk - Locomotive / Hackensack (1957)

I really don't know what I'm talking about here. I mean Jazz. I sat down with this 7" – actually it had been the first record that caught my attention from the pile – I played it, loved it, and was very pleased with me and my Jazz enthusiasm. Only a few days later I found out I had been listening to it at the wrong speed... anyway, on 45 rpm it's still magic. Especially the first track, which sounds so wonderfully wrong and right at the same time. Other musicians on this one are: Frank Foster on tenor sax; Ray Copeland on the trumpet; Curly Russell on bass; and Art Blakey on drums. Enjoy.

Track list:
A Locomotive
B Hackensack
