2003 Duo concert by Duck Baker and clarinet master Ben Goldberg
• Also available as MP3 Download
We are happy to announce the release of this duo concert by Duck Baker and clarinet master Ben Goldberg. It was recorded at a house concert in Berkeley, California in 2003, with the two musicians teaming up for a program devoted to Thelonious Monk tunes and arrangements (nine tunes are Monk originals, and two are standards that bear his unmistakable stamp).
Duck has recorded solo versions of all but three of these tunes on his own records (especially Duck Baker Plays Monk), but these duo versions are something else. The two musicians relate to the tunes and to each other in all kinds of imaginative ways, surprising themselves and their audience time after time.
