I knew of the comments about Peterson, but not about Bill Evans, though I
can imagine that Evans' introspection would have appealed to GG.

As regards Monk: I have this pet theory that GG was waiting in the studio,
nodding to these strange melodies and fragile harmonies and thought: Hmm, I
bet I could make Scarlatti *swing* like that and cut the K.13 sonata....but
it *is* just a thought....
