Jazz Greats - Thelonious Monk Music

Original release 1970

Legendary American Pianist, Thelonious Monk had a unique style, influenced by his early career as accompanist to an evangelist. He used every note on the piano in his improvisation, combined with the power of silence to create his thought-provoking music. ‘Anybody can play a composition and use far-out chords and make it sound wrong. It’s making it sound right that’s not easy.’
