  1. Great show. I wonder how Bach would have enjoyed Minton’s in the early 1940′s.

  2. Probably quite a lot, though he might have felt an urge to correct the piano player.

  3. Bach correcting Monk seems an interesting concept. Perhaps the result would sound like the Modern Jazz Quartet’s “Blues on Bach.” I wonder what it sounded like when Billy Strayhorn sat.

    Messiaen’s seminars after the war at the Sorbonne seem to me an artistic vortex similar to Minton’s, with Boulez, Stochausen, Nono, etc., interacting synergetically.

  4. Not sure how much patience Bach would have, and pretty sure that Monk would not be budged.
