Genius, madman, off-kilter visionary, take your pick. and there are many more descriptions of Monk to be found, but none can fully encompass the entire Monk story. Over time his music has gained acceptance and has been recognized as the game changer it was at the time. There is much to choose from over the course of Monk's career, here are a few of my favorites.
|Thelonious Monk Quartet Plus Two: Live at the Blackhawk||Thelonious Monk: Criss-Cross||Thelonious Monk: Underground|
