More on Monk and the Loft - Jack Goodwin

I’ve just read the New York Times article on Monk. The article refers to the sessions at the loft which were recorded on tapes by the great photographer Eugene Smith and also refers to David X. Young (wonder what the X stood for?). You can see many of the photos taken at that time at the loft here: davidxyoung and several of these feature, amongst others, Warne Marsh (see pic. numbers 1, 7 and 11). As it happens, I’m lucky enough to have a recording from this very session amongst my Warne Marsh archive. Just thought you might be interested.

Thanks for that, Jack, the photos are so real (and surreal) you can almost hear the music - even without your recording!
As Ellington once titled a piece - "Blues to Be There".
