Interesting how Monk stops playing midway through Charlie's solo, he probably got up to stretch his legs and was like "they got this"

That's badass.

saucy risi

@The Lemony Bard that's true, read another comment on some other video about how he arrived 1 hour late to a concert, played for a bit, started dancing, and never said a word throughout the whole gig.

Only Monk could play a ten finger chord and no matter huw you looked at it, everything was discordant, yet it all worked. I once knew a woman who was a good friend of Monk's wife. In stead of thelonius Monk she called him melodius thunk. I never get enough of his work.


The original disruptive revolutionary musician.


The space between his notes tells you why 'less is more' is always better. He was never in a rush.

Oh, man, when the bass comes out in front of the mix at, like, 7:50! Incredible!
