Thelonious Monk - Essential Works 1952-1962

Thelonious Monk Vinyl Records

Recognized as one of the most original musicians in American history, Thelonious Sphere Monk fashioned a startlingly unique, inimitable playing and composing style that influenced virtually every succeeding jazz generation. His playing technique offered a percussive approach to the piano, identified by sparse, complex, sometimes dissonant harmonies, developed from unusual intervals and rhythms, and imbued with warmth and playfulness. (His motto was "There are no wrong notes on the piano.") Monk's name is synonymous with the creation of modern jazz; many of his compositions are jazz standards including, "Round Midnight," "Well You Needn’t," "Straight, No Chaser," and "Epistrophy." His bold musical conceptions sought to bind harmony and rhythm seamlessly to melody.
