It is what it says…
'Hat and Beard’ by Dolphy - a modernist classic for me.
Here, re-imagined by Solid Bird
I had FUN!!!!!!
ITS SO DIFFICULT TO PLAY HA HA… HA HA
Hope you all like it on this list. Its written using the whole tone scale - some call it a synthetic scale… make of that what you will.
Debussy loved it, and a few others - blending it with serialism it destabilised the ear and expectation of diatonic harmony…
The title may be referring to that singular composer - Monk! Out to lunch indeed - and thank god for that.
It feels as if it is constantly changing key every couple of beats.
I used electric drums overlaid on the last section.
All the best,
