Miles Okazaki "Work"

carloscarlos Frets: 1504
My favourite release this year. While having a super busy year of touring Miles released a 6 volume set of all of Monk's compositions played on solo guitar. Far from similar efforts like Joe Pass's Virtuoso, Miles goes really left field in his interpretation of these tunes. For example, here's his version of Evidence.

Here's the original:


I don't think this album is strictly for jazzers but for anybody interested in what the guitar, with no fx added, can do rhythmically and harmonically. Every time I listen to it I pick up something new and knowing most of the purchase goes to the author makes me happy to contribute.
