Review

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.

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.

Just as Danilo Perez had been hailed as an iconic champion on the Latin jazz
circuit, he stunned the music world in 1996 with this sparkling velocity-driven CD
that not only pay tribute to Thelonious Monk (one of his greatest influences), but
even put a fresh spin on the jazz pianist-composer's groundbreaking legacy. As
one of the most highly interesting albums to pay tribute to Thelonious Monk after
his death, Panamonk well-showcases a dazzling trio performance that highlights
a solid array of arresting tracks that consist of respectful ballads, Latinized takes
of Monk's music and original `tribute' compositions he fitted quite logically well in
a stylish mood for this special set. Beginning with the opening version of Monk's
Mood, the robust track set proceed with absolute vim on original songs including
Mercedes' Mood, Hot Bean Strut and the title track, as well as on Latin versions
of Bright Mississippi and Four In One/ Evidence, which he handles with a unique
style and outstanding virtuosity. Briefly signed to the Impulse! label (now owned
by Verve), Panamonk showcases the hot musical background and hard intensity
as Danilo gives the album it's caliber edge as other important elements includes
Monk's signature classic Round Midnight, and Danilo even intellects with bassist
Avishai Cohen on other tracks, while he serve up a wordless vocal take on Olga
Roman's September In Rio, which adds up to the album's adventurous success.
Featuring Avishai Cohen on bass and session drummers Terri Lynn Carrington
and Jeff "Tain" Watts, it is on this album that Danilo would put a fiery spin on the
music of Thelonious Monk by that brings it towards another arena of rhythm that
is perpetuated by it's striking Latin jazz appeal and a sparkling stroke of genius.

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!!!!!

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 ›
