The Life of a Great Monk

This week’s Great Lives programme on Radio 4 (Tuesday, 4:30pm) considers the life of Thelonious Monk. Making the case for Monk’s inclusion on the Beeb’s ‘Great Life’ list will be Hannah Rothschild. You can bank on her presenting a cogent argument.
Matthew Parris will chair the debate and they will be joined by writer Richard Williams in a friendly, round table discussion. Is Parris a jazz fan? Will he play devil’s advocate – the cloth-eared philistine? Tune in to find out.
Later in the week Alan Plater’s radio play The Gallery, set in a Tyneside art gallery, can be heard on Radio 4 Extra. Friday, 9:15pm is the time of the broadcast. Catch it later on BBC iPlayer when you get home from the Jazz Café having listened to the fabulous Ms Alice Grace singing with her new quintet.

Russell, I heard the Monk programme by chance and it was very informative. Hannah Rothschild reckoned that his relationship with the baroness was platonic. She idolised him from the first time she heard his music, before she knew him. Miles Davis didn't like his music. I loved the music on the programme, very 20th century, possible influenced by 12 tone classical. Ann Alex
