Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”

Thelonious Monk - Monk's Dream (Take 8)


Monk’s Dream (Take 8) ~ Thelonious Monk (w/.Quartet)

Just a fine way to end this very fine day…..I was thinking of Monk today as I strolled through the 400 plus photographs of Dennis Hopper’s Lost Album Exhibition at the RAC…..thought some of the work was tragically brilliant…why tragic because I think that Dennis was always consider an nutty activist/actor….not a very very artist with his finger on the pulse of what art was doing and where it was going.  The Sunday Got Jazz and Memories selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner.  Peace, love and scorpion vodka y’all!
