Covers suit Ben Monder

On most of Monder's recordings, he is playing original music with a few covers sprinkled in. This is an album of primarily covers of songs written by other people. The first half is solo performances, the second half is with a trio. In both cases he moves through the songs with an exploratory yet assured approach. Playing with the trio gives him a chance to stretch out and improvise on the songs, which is always interesting to hear him do. The solo arrangements seem to be more through-composed. Another advantage of playing covers is that it allows him to be a bit more accessible to listeners new to him, so this is an excellent introductory recording (another is his work on David Bowie's final recording, Blackstar). Highly recommended.
