Any attempt to explain or describe Thelonious Monk's music would be useless. His genius lay in his ability to transcend categorization and create a new musical landscape with each composition. Here are eleven artists exploring Monk's sound-world and commenting on, reinventing and even enhancing the composer's works via their own creativity. With performances by Frank Morgan, Larry Coryell, Houston Person, Arthur Blythe, Larry Willis and others this is one Monk anthology you will return to over and over.
