I remain enamored of these quartets, including the Pulitzer-winning Third that includes a part of (for?) electronic tape.
I've worked out a formula for determining which Monk recordings I like best. They need to have a catch and clever melody, Monk's piano solo needs to be emphatic, and the tenor saxophone needs to be well-recorded.
I was late in buying the new Radiohead release. I like the instrumental part of these songs but I may suffer from Thom Yorke vocal malaise (his and mine).
Tim Mangan's post ( "She didn't embarrass herself (a triumph in itself), but neither did she really get down.") reminds me to listen again to this attempt at pop, for better or worse. By the way, that last song is an Arcade Fire cover.
Terry Riley vocals are an acquired taste, and it took awhile but I'm there...
