The Fo'tet Plays Monk (Ralph Peterson, drums; Belden Bullock, bass; Bryan Carrott, vibraphone; Steve Wilson, soprano sax) brings an adventurous creativity to a set of well-chosen tunes. Ralph Peterson is a fiery leader on drums and his arrangements look at the more familiar tunes from a fresh angle. Jackie-ing", the disc opener, is given a funky New Orleans groove, while the time signature of "Epistrophy" is stretched to 7/4. On "Light Blue", Peterson lays down an African-influenced beat over the sinuous melody.

Their tribute to Thelonious Monk features the unit (which does not include a pianist) playing nine Monk tunes (including such difficult numbers as "Skippy," "Played Twice," "Criss Cross" and "Four in One"), plus a couple of originals, "Monkin' Around" and "Spherically Speaking. The light sound of the group contrasts with the "heavy" nature of the complex improvisations, and overall, this is a high-quality outing (adding to the jazz tradition rather than just copying the past) that is well worth several listens
