Jazz-legend Thelonious Monk once remarked,“The piano ain’t got no wrong notes” and his extraordinary compositions were proof of just that. Monk took up piano at 6 years old and began developing his unique style late in his teens when he was a house pianist at Minton’s Playhouse, a Harlem nightclub, also considered the birthplace of bebop. Thelonious Monk’s songbook may only span about 70 compositions, but many of them are regarded as jazz standards,“Round Midnight”,“Well You Needn’t” and“Ruby My Dear” just to name a few.
A true originator in all sense of the word, his wardrobe was just as eccentric as his melodies, with suits, hats, and sunglasses adding to his distinct look. Dissonant yet deliberate, bizarre yet beautiful, Monk’s innovative and creative vision had an immeasurable influence on modern jazz and the important figures to come.
