Thelonious Monk - Something In Blue

A freaking monster record sent to me by my pal Six String. I am humbled.

Monk never ceases to impress. More crazy piano goodness in the trio setting.

For all of his craziness, his outside approaches, I luve the fact that Monk never dismissed the popular canon. Nice work if you can get it, indeed.
