a comment on freeimprov's review
I think you're missing the point. One of the beauties of Jazz, and I'm sure Monk would have agreed, is that there is no one right or wrong way to interpret a composition. Jazz is all about the freedom to twist and bend the written notes to be what you want them to be. As you say in your review this is Andy Summer's interpretation of Monk's compositions. It's not Andy Summers doing an imitation of Monk. If Summer's interpretation doesn't include what you call "equal parts insanity and devil may care" that's his choice. You are free to like or dislike it but I think you do a real disservice to the music be dismissing it as not valid on it's own.
