Before Thelonious Monk purists start speculating on the potential morbidity of the title of Monk's Music Trio's third lushly rendered exploration of the legendary pianist's catalog, the truth must be told: it was inspired by the name of a book on the Ellington trombone section Roswell Rudd (who along with Max Perkoff, son of group pianist Si Perkoff, forms . The 'bones also come in handy on the strangely intriguing avant-garde rendering of "Friday the Thirteenth," which begins with drummer Chuck Bernstein playing blues on the Brazilian one-stringed berimbau.
The third recording by Monk's Music Trio adds the trombones of Roswell Rudd, a longtime exponent of Monk's work, and Max Perkoff, the son of the band's pianist, Si Perkoff. All of the tracks profit from the differences between Rudd's eccentric vant-garde effusions and the younger Perkoff's full-bodied, more conventional style. Keeping the snare drum accents to a minimum, Bernstein elicits a variety of textures from his cymbals while maintaining a firm groove throughout Si Perkoff's "Blue Monk solo.

Chuck Bernstein formed Monk’s Music Trio in August 1999. Initially, two purposes guided the creation of this group: To perform the compositions of Thelonious Monk and to showcase the talents of pianist Si Perkoff, who Bernstein considers the best interpreter of Monk’s music in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since then, the trio has released two critically acclaimed CDs, Harmony Of Odd Numbers, and Think Of One. With the release of their third CD, the trio has expanded to a quintet for the recording Monk’s Bones a sound kept coming into my consciousness, almos. The musicians on this album are striving to navigate the course set by his sighting, if only to re-explore some of what he discovered. It’s a challenging adventure, but we have our hearts, minds, and ears open and no end of passion for this glorious work.
The original lineup of Monk's Music Trio was formed in the late '90s, when veteran drummer Chuck Bernstein approached pianist Si Perkoff about the possibility of putting together a piano trio that would play Monk tunes exclusively. Perkoff, who was considered a major Monk expert in Bay Area jazz circles, liked the idea - and the fact that Perkoff's pianism was greatly influenced by Monk (as well as Bud Powell and Horace Silver) certainly didn't hurt
