Tales from the far Side 23.09.21 Kinda Monkish-a Journey into Thelonious Monk's Music

On this edition I celebrate and explore the music of Thelonious Monk interpreted by a variety of artists adding their own imaginations and improvisation to it, artists like Carmen McRae, EST, Sphere, Steve Lacy, John Beasley's Monk'estra, Francisco Bearazotti and Tinissima4Tet, Elliott Sharp and of course the man himself.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
