O’s Notes: This is B3-artist Gregory Lewis’s fourth album dedicated to the music of Thelonius Monk. Gregory’s arrangements transform Monk’s tunes into a contemporary mix of blues, rock, fusion and hard bop. The band is guitarist Marc Ribot, Jeremy“Bean“Clemons on drums with Greg holding things together on the B3. “Green Chimneys” and “Blues Five Spot” are our favorites.“Organ Monk Blue“is a fitting title for this dedication to Thelonius Monk’s blues based tunes and one that is yet another chapter in the book of Monk interpretations.
