After a long hiatus, the band dedicated to the spirit of Thelonious Sphere Monk returns in full strength on this fine disc. And the spirit is carried on in unique, angular readings of Monk tunes ("We See," "Hornin' In") and varied standards. "Surrey With the Fringe on Top" becomes a unique journey of the mind and spirit and leader Kenny Barron's own "Twilight Song" is a unassuming beauty. A refreshing disc.
