Thelonious Sphere Monk – Two facts and a video

Thelonious Sphere Monk was criticized by observers who failed to listen to his music on its own terms, suffered through a decade of neglect before he was suddenly acclaimed as a genius; his music had not changed one bit in the interim. – source allmusicĀ 

Monk’s manner was idiosyncratic. Visually, he was renowned for his distinctive style in suits, hats and sunglasses. He was also noted for the fact that at times, while the other musicians in the band continued playing, he would stop, stand up from the keyboard and dance for a few moments before returning to the piano. – source Wikipedia

  1. I stumbled across your site by accident, but I’m glad I did. There’s so much interesting stuff for me on here that I will be coming back often. Somehow I dig what you say and the way you see things; including the Neil Young part.
    Love the Thelonios Monk video. Not to be nosy, but what are you writing (now). Cheers and have a good day.
