Craig Wedge Matsumoto on Miles Okazaki solo guitar version of Monk Bemsha “shwing!!!”
Great post, Wedge. Great 2020 foresight. I have two admissions that are sort of self-cancelling. One, I like to brag about befriending Steve Lacy, about whom I tell everybody— as recently as the other day, or yesterday — was the first to play Monk rather than T himself. (I was speaking to the artist Marlinda Fitzgerald) three actually, in that I knew TJ Kirk and JT Kirk before TM itself. 2nd is I didn’t know Bensha Swing until my then client Jack Walrath played it to an otherwise empty house at The Octopus in Pacifica in 2003.
