Ages since I listened to the DB Octet actually - cool!

It's pretty remarkable how much condescension the Octet recordings get.

Bean bops to Monk -- great players and arrangement. And Claude Thornhill is always a treat. As Duke Ellington said to his widow, "I wonder if the world will ever know what it has lost in this beautiful man." Thanks for all of this fine music.
