Man do I love Thelonious Monk. And I am still amazed at the quality of the versions found on a Starbucks compilations CD of all places. One of the things I love the most about this guy is how much he was misunderstood when he first hit the scene. People just couldn't understand what he was playing and why his chords sounded so dissonant. Well he certainly made the jazz community understand in the long run. A creative genius indeed!
