MORE "M's"

To recap, I'm trawling through the alphabet in the CD shelves. Each day or therebaouts I record a mini-disc of a selection from one letter. Given a disc takes 74-80 minutes, sometimes it's two CDs or parts thereof.

For the letter M, I cheated a bit by recording two discs. There's a good selection and recording Thelonius Monk's classic 1956 "Brilliant Corners" whetted the appetite for more jazz. I chose a trio that pushes boundaries as much as Monk: Medeski, Martin and Wood. "Uninvisible" sees them welding hip-hop beats and sampling to good jazz-funk grooves.

Double pleasure. Just don't say M&M.
