Thelonious Monk – Brilliant Corners

71suznx4zul-_sx425_

100 years ago today, Thelonious Sphere Monk took bodily form in the oxygen around our earth.

Monk is the champ.

This is one of the Top 5 most important jazz albums ever recorded.

My favorite Thelonious Monk quote:

“Everyone is influenced by everybody but you bring it down home the way you feel it.”

Deep bows, Thelonious Monk. Deep bows.
