Monks 7/28 Gianni Bianchini Trio


Gianni is an old friend of Monks who has been in Ecuador for the past two years. While he was visiting Austin, he dropped in for two sets of piano standards and even sang a couple for us. I tried to highlight some heavy piano tracks on this one, but there were so many new releases I was trying to get to (especially that Tohru Aizawa WOW). An mp3 of the set can be downloaded here. Hope you like it.
