monk in the cracks

pieter douma’s dorkus maximus

In the fall of 2021 we recorded an album with Thelonius Monk compositions; redundant but we did it anyway. Release will be september 2022.

Rocco Romano - guitars
André Groen - drums
Alan 'Gunga' Purves - drums and sounds
Frank Nielander - saxophones
Pieter Douma - basses, keys

We’ll capture the vibe of a number of his genius songs and bring them to life in our times. Keep y’all posted.
