Frankie Dunlop: Monk’s Lesson on Slow vs Fast Playing (First Time Audio)

SKF NOTE: One of my favorite parts of my interviews with the great drummer Frankie Dunlop. Now, for the first time, listeners can hear Frankie describe his lesson from Thelonious Monk on playing fast vs playing slow — including Frankie’s great imitation of Monk’s voice. My Modern Drummer Frankie Dunlop feature has an edited version of this story, which is quoted in the book, Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original, by Robin D. G. Kelley.
