Criss-Cross is Thelonious Monk's critically acclaimed second studio release for Columbia Records. The album consists of previously released Monk compositions that were re-recorded for Columbia by the Thelonious Monk Quartet. Criss-Cross was recorded during and shortly after the sessions for Monk's first Columbia LP, Monk's Dream.
Criss Cross Jazz is a Dutch record company and label specializing in jazz. Criss Cross was founded in 1980 by Gerry Teekens, a drummer and German professor. Teekens started the label after organizing tours for jazz musicians such as Jimmy Raney and Warne Marsh. Early issues included Raney and Marsh, Chet Baker, Pete Christlieb, Stan Getz, Tom Harrell, and Clifford Jordan.
The band toured in support of the album before Taylor took a short break for the 1989 Queen album The Miracle, for which there was no tour. First album: Shove It. After Queen's 1986 Magic Tour, the band members went their separate ways to do various solo work. The band promoted hard in Germany especially, with many TV performances of singles including an appearance at the Montreux Golden Rose festival in 1988. The tour took in dates in the UK and Germany. The rest of the album consisted mainly of individually written songs, except for "Power To Love" which was a joint venture by Macrae, Noone and Moss. Clayton Moss sang lead vocals on his own track "Better Things", and Spike Edney played mandolin on "Final Destination", which was written by Taylor.
Nevertheless, Criss Cross was (and is) a great way for listeners unfamiliar with Monk to experience him for the first time in slightly low-key performances of classic Monk tunes. None of the songs exceeds four minutes and offer an excellent cross section of Monk’s artistry, from the lively Hackensack to the artfully constructed Criss Cross with a couple of standards thrown in, of course. Crepuscle With Nellie is arguably the best rendition of the tune, with Charlie Rouse displaying an empathy and understanding that not even Sonny Rollins could find. I love jazz because it& the speechless voice of the sound of the African American. I was first exposed to jazz as a child growing up in NYC and listening to the jazz radio (WLIB with Billy Taylor).
This is probably the most common method of lacing normal shoes & boots. The laces simply criss-cross as they work their way up the shoe. There is a subtle variation of Criss Cross Lacing that appears in many shoes that come pre-laced from the factory. The lacing starts with the bottom horizontal section running straight across the outside and with the first crossover on the inside. The remainder of the shoe is laced normally. In later years, with greater competition and cheaper labor, manufacturers began lacing their shoes all the way, yet still starting as they always did with the ends fed into the bottom eyelets. The end result was this variation, which has since become one of the "standard" ways that shoes now arrive pre-laced.

I was born a while ago. Now I’m here. It’s been ten years since Mr Hudson’s last full length album. In that time I’ve spent a pretty solid percentage with him as both a friend and a fan, talking about music, life, love, dreams, and everything in between.
