The Song Of The Day

I listened (again) to this short tune on youtube this morning and felt like reposting it (originally posted here on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2009)

Thelonius Monk said:

"Stop playing all those weird notes; play the melody."

"The inside of the tune is what makes the outside sound good."

"You got it! If you don't want to play, tell a joke or dance but in any case you got it!'.

"A Genius is the one most like himself. "

In 1973 (or there abouts) a band based in western Massachusetts called Real Tears played a lot at the Rusty Nail in Sunderland, Ma. Something about the keyboards/organ (Kit Walker) Tim Moran's sax and Jim Bridges on guitar. Just perfect.

Kit Walker and his (1958) Hammond B3 are still playing...
