STEVE CARDENAS is a renowned jazz guitarist; teacher; and author of The Thelonious Monk Fake Book, which presents over 70 Monk compositions in an easy-to-read format.
Steve has played with Ben Allison and Paul Motian, to name only two; his new album drops early in 2020.
On today’s episode, we disuss the history of fake books; why transcribing Monk is such a challenge; and why sidemen often (always?) make the best band leaders.
Check out Steve’s albums on Bandcamp, and visit him on the web, www.stevecardenasmusic.com.
