SKF Blog Audio: Frankie Dunlop: Monk Said, "Keep the Time, Regardless" 

 

SKF NOTE: Frankie Dunlop agreed to a feature interview for Modern Drummer magazine, which was published in 1984. I didn't know at the time my interview sessions with Frankie would be his only full-length interview. Now, 30 plus years later I am digitizing Frankie's interview. Here is a brief excerpt, part of  a longer interview session taped in my living room in Washington, CT on December 13, 1984.

That is very cool. And Monk's tempos were not easy. They were usually a bit slower than you were accustomed to. So you had to get the groove without rushing. Frankie really nailed those tempos; so did Ben Riley.
