Blue Monk by Baker

Duck Baker playing Blue Monk.

Duck Baker, a maestro of the finger picked guitar if there ever was one, recorded in 1996 one of my favorite records, Spinning Song. On the record Baker essays the knotty, joyous music of the great Herbie Nichols. Five stars times two. (Marc Myers on Nichols from his fine blog JazzWax.)

Obviously in this clip my ‘mostest‘ favorite musician Monk gets the Baker treatment.
