- thelonious moog: american standards
(2007, cd, usa, grown up records)
"American Standards" is the duo's second album. They kept the name but changed the concept. As the title suggests, the listener is treated to moog-ed versions of a number of familiar sounding tunes.
The album opens with 'Powerhouse', the Raymond Scott classic, and ends with Earle Hagen's 'Harlem Nocturne'. In-between are superb and hilarious versions of great tunes, including Frank Zappa's 'Duodenum' (and Focus' 'Hocus Pocus').
The album got released in 2007 (how come I only heard about it now ?!?). Nice artwork / package by Wayno and David Greenberger.
Essential listening !!
