Brian Trainor’s writing and playing display an uncanny similarity in style to Thelonious Monk on this aggressively charged collection of songs – original compositions with some classic Monk tunes.

On Monk and Me, Trainor joins forces with Richie Cole and Steve Marcus to created an incredible energy-packed recording. Trainor studied Monk as a composer and passionately loved him as a pianist.

This recording is the result of playing Monk’s music in performance and realizing the affinity he had with the music and the audience reaction to that synergy.
