Album Notes
Cologne based, Berlin born bass player Matthias Akeo Nowak always felt a deep fascination for the work of Thelonious Monk, one of the timeless geniuses of modern jazz. After he got to know Hamburg based tenor sax player Sebastian Gille, he immediately knew that this very special and expressive saxophonist combined with his own working trio was the perfect match for an ambitious Monk project. In order to extend harmonic means of expression he also added his longtime friend and colleague Rainer Böhm, so his kOi Trio had become a quintet. The trio's regular members are Riaz Khabirpour on guitar and Oliver Rehmann on drums.
Matthias then made a selection of Monk tunes that aren't heard that often, except maybe "Criss Cross" or "Ruby, My Dear".
The music on this album was recorded during a concert the quintet played at Salon de Jazz, Cologne - it turned out to be an inspired and expressive session and Matthias decided to make it available on CD, something all of us should be grateful about.
