Ask Me Now - Anthony Braxton - Six Monks Compositions (1987) (Vinyl, LP, Album)

The other five compositions here are treated in a similar fashion, in that they are radically reinterpreted, played and executed with a degree of musicianship seldom found on any tribute. Braxton's intent was to get at the knotty -- even nutty -- harmonic and rhythmic idiosyncrasies that make Monk's music connect so deeply and widely yet remain difficult to interpret correctly. If all you get is a listen to "Four in One" or "Skippy," just listen to how completely each of these musicians reinvents himself to approach the material.

Lower action feels much looser because the string only has to be Generally the AKs were No, me neither, I only turned it up to see if the noise would increase with the increase in volume. I never played at more than My amp is seldom above 12, and actually seldom that high.

Louder than that hurts my ears. I have never turned it up to the last quarter turn, not even in environments that were so loud that I had No, that's not it. The noise is always there and it's loud even in volume 2, but there is only an increase in the volume of the noise even more in the last quarter of the volume knob. I do all Although I like the local shop and separate independent luthier that I use to do my setups and repairs, this rabbit hole seems like a lot of trial, error, and personal preference to get right.

The problem is only in the last quarter turn before the volume control is maxed out? Well, now I know why I haven't heard it. I never turn it up that high.
