Blue Monk: SuperBass Big Band

Three acoustic bass players, John Clayton, Ray Brown and Christian McBride, and the WDR Big Band (the big band of the Westdeutscher Rundfunk), from a 1997 performance in Cologne, Germany. Blue Monk was the “personal favorite” composition of Thelonious Monk, who first recorded it in 1954. He went on to record it thirty times with many of the legends of modern jazz.
