Free Jazz. музыка конечно неописуемая. чем то тянет на Diamanda Galas. короче ужас. но ужас классный. Ov And Men's Conclave,B. Total votes: 9. On Dolmen Music, Monk wavers from being sad to the point of being quite morose such as the tracks Gotham Lullaby and The Tale to being happy to the point of hysteria as on Traveling and Biography without skipping a beat. Most of the musical accompaniment is minimalist mainly piano with occasional, sparse percussion, guest vocalists also being prominent on the final six-part track Dolmen Music. Dolmen Music.

Gotham Lullaby Ft. With her voice, in its infinite permutations - gorgeous slides, ululations, breaths, cries, howls, drones - she navigated a landscape that seemed both familiar and strangely unfamiliar.
