Luckily, he lived long enough to become fully embraced and celebrated before his passing. However, it's after his death that his music has really become central to the ...

Frank Kimbrough: Monk's Dreams

Read "Monk's Dreams" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

Thelonious Monk, though controversial in his time, was a brilliant, innovative pianist and composer with a unique way of conceiving the music that was yet remarkably simpatico with standard forms. Many of his compositions (they are much more than “tunes," though I'll use that word here as shorthand) have become a regular part of the jazz ...
