Michael, I have to say that your Coltrane article is very well written. Do you think you will take suggestions from readers to do articles on specific pieces? If so, I would like to see more Monk pieces. Thank you!

Thanks for your kind words, Othello.

As it turns out, Monk has been one of my favourites, for years, too, and it would be a lot of fun (and instructive!) to really dig more deeply into what he does in the dimension of time, alone! However, there are a number of things I've wanted to put up on my site, that I've yet to finish -- a lengthy analysis of the beginning of Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat that I've yet to complete, an harmonic analysis of Brubeck's Rising Sun, some thoughts on some of Danny Grissett's marvellous improvising -- plus tend to my own students, get the word out to prospective students, and -- hopefully! -- spend some time on my own music. However, I'll hold that 'Monk' thought, just in case. smile (If you like what Monk does with time, you may also enjoy what I hope to be highlighting in the Stravinsky piece -- I hope to have it on the site by November or December.)

In the meantime, if you'd care to pass the site's URL on to others who may find it interesting, I'd be most grateful!

All the best,
Michael
