Modern Drummer 01/2004
CD review Monk’s Corner (Double Moon Records), reviewed by Martin Patmos:
On this mix of Thelonious Monk tunes and originals, drummer Karl Latham is subtle and supportive of Johannes Mössinger’s melodic and angular piano. Latham has a feel on drums that offers plenty of nice shading and accents, reacting as a part of the trio and propelling things forward. Check out the post-bop interpetations of „Bemsha Swing“, for example, or the funky take on „Well You Needn’t.“ And on „Brilliant Corners“, which features guest sax from Joe Lovano, Latham delivers a surging solo filled with rolls and punctations. Whether playing it delicate or groovy, Mössinger’s trio consistently displays strong ideas.
