Thelonious Monk

Thanks to Claudio Cavalcanti who masterminds the Brazilian blog JAZZofilo I discovered this amazing article about the High Priest of Bebop that appeared in the New York Times last week. A fascinating piece. Click here to read. Also to listen to music and narration. It brought to mind last year's fantastic re-creation of the New York Town Hall Concert at The Sage, Gateshead, by Jason Moran (pictured below with Jason Yarde, alto.)
