In 1513, Spanish explorer Vasco Núñez de Balboa crossed the Isthmus of Panama, becoming the first European to reach the Pacific Ocean and founding the first permanent European settlement in the Americas. Those events continue to resonate five centuries later as Panama celebrates the landmark anniversary.

Editorial Reviews


Pianist Danilo Perez has continued to develop his skills and concepts during the past few years, but PanaMonk stands as a modest landmark on two fronts. First, it tells the story of just one of many bright young musicians who've mastered the framework handed down by Thelonious Monk and stretched it to fit their needs. Also, it's one of several recent harbingers of a new, modern telling of the Latin-jazz story - in this case, focusing on Perez's Panamanian heritage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine Monk playing March 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Almost all modern jazz pianists play Monk, whose tunes are their Well-Tempered Clavier. However, this album, the first, I believe, by Danilo Perez, is exceptionally spirited and non-perfunctory. Perez performs the always-challenging trick of being faithful to the original sense of these highly idiosyncratic tunes, and yet injects his own individual sense of time, blues, and Pan-American sensibility. I have found almost all of Perez' recordings after this disappointing by comparison, which is too bad. I don't really understand why. But this is highly recommended.

one of my favorite albums from the young jazz players out there i will put danilo up there with joshua redman and cristian macbride... i also got the journey and motherland albums wich are good albums but not great albums to me... anyway problably is my loving for thelonious monk what makes me surrender to this one... listen to it, bright mississippi and hot been strut are the best pieces on it... hope you enjoy listening.. its got great solo from danilo, he was playing with mc bride on bass and they hook up on this one for good...

Danilo Perez has created an awsome tribute to the High Priest of jazz piano, Thelonious Monk. Not only does he pay tribute to Monk, but you will hear him tip his hat to other great pianists of our time. This is a recording that will pay dividends with each listening. It is an inspiration when young men and women take the time to learn and build on their history and culture. Five stars for this album!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Recomendo October 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Foi o amigo JoFlavio, conspícuo membro do dilucidante blog Charuto Jazz, quem veio com a estória de que Thelonious Monk não sabia tocar piano. São dele as seguintes linhas: "Acompanho a carreira do Monk desde o início da década de 60. Não só como pianista, mas principalmente como compositor. Monk chegou a ser considerado um "pianista menor", talvez pela técnica pobre, que até o impossibilitava de tocar em "up tempo" - se comparado, por exemplo, a um Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, etc. Era nítido o esforço dele em tocar. Sim, como consolo, foi criativo harmonicamente. O grande legado de Monk está nos temas que compôs, de certo modo revolucionários para a época. Como pianista, em minha opinião, não fez escola." Ora, ora. Não demorou um minuto, estava desencadeada uma das maiores polêmicas já suscitadas aqui no Jazzseen, alvoroço geral, acusações gratuitas, ataques de hackers, celeuma, cizânia e crise. Convocamos, às pressas, eu e Reinaldo Santos Neves, Reunião Extraordinária do Clube das Terças, onde o sócio André, especialista em Monk, fora convocado a falar. Um silêncio incômodo sentou-se à mesa do Clube, enquanto todos aguardavam aflitos a definitiva sentença. André disse: "A ênfase no bebop é a improvisação, sendo rara a presença marcante de compositores, caso de Thelonious Monk. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Energetic August 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you have ever wondered what the music of Thelonious Monk would sound like if played with a Latin flair (you may have never wondered that before, but now that you have started to read this review, you may well be wondering just that already--kind of like the old psychological trick, telling someone "try not to think about an elephant"), young pianist Danilo Lopez has the answers you have been looking for. Playing both Monk originals and some of his own compositions, accompanied by bass and drums, Perez spiritedly communicates a zest for music and life that resonates with Monk's musical personality. This is one of the freshest, most energetic jazz recordings I have heard in some time, and I recommend it highly to all jazz fans, especially to those with a love for the music of Thelonious Sphere Monk.
