Miles Okazaki 'Work – Music by Thelonious Monk' (USA)

Miles Okazaki: guitar

This modern American guitarist presented a musical undertaking of epic proportions – a complete repertoire of one of the greatest composers recorded for the solo guitar on a total of six CDs. In the sea of projects devoted to Monk, WORK stands out because of, not only the critical claim, but also the fact that it is about an extraordinary musician who is devoted to an extraordinary composer which resulted in an extraordinary album and unbelievable music.

An intimate, warm, enigmatic, playful, gentle experience. (The New York Times)
