Did we ever talk about The Kronos Quartet's "Monk Suite"?

That's another album that belongs on a list of "third streamy albums that don't suck": https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_kDXGvyexbyxqq2tIr7f_6qSQSFSqhqgZw
. But yeah, I'd also recommend "Sketches of Spain" to Trung if he hasn't heard it already (though something tells me that he has since he specifically mentioned Miles and that's one of his most famous albums)
You've heard both "Mingus Dynasty" and "Blues & Roots" right? Those are the 2 that are the closest to "Ah Um" so I'd recommend checking them out. And like I told Trung, "Tijuana Moods" probably comes closest to "Black Saint" (was released just 1 year prior) so peep that one as well. Not sure which Mingus you've heard at this point...
