Monk's Mellifluous Melody

Happy 103rd Birthday, Monk!

To celebrate Thelonious Monk this October, here is a lick from his quintessential 12 bar blues, “Straight, No Chaser.”

The opening chorus of his solo features a rhythmic melodic idea which he transforms through the chorus with style.

Thanks for the music, Monk!

Happy Practicing!
