4/18/23 O&A NYC SONG OF THE DAY: Thelonius Monk Quartet _Monk au danemark

Thelonious Monk the greatest pianist, composer of Jazz of all time, At twenty-two he is the official pianist of Minton’s club in Harlem. During jam sessions with drummer Kenny Clark, trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, saxophonist Charlie Parker and guitarist Charlie Christian, among others, he developed a new style: Bebop.

But he deviates from it quite quickly to sharpen his particular style made of harmonic dissonance and rhythmic discontinuity.He hits the keys like an African percussionist. Simply a genius. Inimitable.
