that's basie leaning on the piano; wish i knew what he was thinking. he's both emulating basie and tearing him up. basie is the very essence of swing, and one thing that's so right about monk is that he also never did not swing. like i hate to say a lot of those bop players in my opinion lost their way in technical fireworks, and lost both the blues base and the swing time. i mean by the time you get to 'fusion,' it just don't move. but monk swings; that's what that funny laid-back, in-the-cut kind of time meant. here's the more virtuosic thing i mean.
