    Thelonious Monk - Straight No Chaser (Columbia CK-64886)

    Not my favorite Monk by any means and not the best Quartet Monk assembled but I really love the title track on this one, a classic.

    Not at all, I appreciate the conversation. Hope I didn't come across as defensive.

    Agreed. Hip hop is a branch of so-called jazz. It grew organically from it and shares the common element of improvisation. When music and arts funding were cut by reactionary politicians and kids lost much of their access to those instruments and programs they turned to the turntables that were the vehicles of playing all that jazz/r&b/blues and made them an instrument which grew its own branches & vines.

    I love those covers! The homage really resonates the connection of these genres.

    The statement by Ray Charles: "I listened to Oscar to learn" is interesting.

    Both Oscar and Ray, in their early years, were intense disciples of the cool, hip vocal sound of the young Nat Cole.

    When I was a kid, young students could get an instrument from the school for a total of $10 per year. Any instrument. That did not even cover the cost of broken strings or reeds that the school provided. Of course, today every parent has to buy an instrument, though there is still some sense of volunteerism in getting donated instruments to kids. But there need to be volunteer repair experts too.

    But it is about more than just some "reactionary politicians". It is a complex mix of school budgets and local processes to fund schools, and where those funds go. Virtually all of the money for education once came from the community, and funds were always tight. My father was a schoolteacher, and I will say we had either eggs or beans for dinner on many of our nights. I bet the budget for security at schools today is greater than the budget for music.

    For the first time on this forum I had to put someone on Ignore list. But probably the better solution than replying to that nitwit.

    That was an easy guess. :) These threads tend to attract some very unsavoury individuals. My first and only 'ignore' got triggered in one of those conversations too, just by reading it. :)

    I agree with @Bobby Boogaloo : hip hop is an extension of jazz. In that it comes from the house party/dance hall/community center scene in New York, and is an accessible form of black American cultural expression, one might even call it a modern-day form of jazz (not the modern-day form of jazz, as there are many jazz scenes, from the streets of New Orleans to Los Angeles to London, to the repertories of New York and Boston, and so on.

    Those Blue Note-style hip hop covers are cool, but many are nearly direct lifts of the original designs. Check out my cousin's work, an homage to Reid Miles of original designs: Wu-Note — Logan Mills Walters
