Few days ago I came across this marvellous and very interesting documentary on Thelonious Monk.
Monk is a pure genius, a magician, a gifted and unorthodox musician. This footage is a terrific overview of his life and his music. I have found really sad the fact that just few people saw this direct evidence of one of the most glorious and grandiose period of Jazz history. Get knowledge kids and respect the real architects!
Unfortunately the part 10 is missed…or at least I could not find it…
Now, listen to this 3 classic Monk’s songs:
Listen to Bye Ya
Listen to Bolivar Blues
Listen to Little Rootie Tootie
