    "Tea for Two" showcases Monk 's appreciation for the great stride or "walking" piano style of James P. Johnson and Willie "The Lion" Smith. The arrangement here is lighter, and features a trio (minus Rouse) to accent rather than banter with Monk 's splashes of magnificence throughout. Likewise, Monk 's solo on "Don't Blame Me" is excellent.

    It is commonly agreed that the "Skippy"'s changes are based on Monk's reharmonization of "Tea for Two" (which he would later record on The Unique Thelonious Monk, and on Criss-Cross,) but Ethan Iverson argues that Monk composed "Skippy", then applied the changes to "Tea for Two". Something in Blue. A bar blues in B ♭.

    May 25,  · "Criss Cross" still stands out as a great jazz album regardless of the eternal recurrence of some of its repertoire. The usual addictive catchiness of Monk's dissonant melodies pervades every song. This formula continued throughout Monk's tenure with Columbia, though he would manage to add in a new tune here and there/5(49).

    Thelonious Sphere Monk (Rocky Mount, North Carolina 10th October - Hartsdale, New York 17th February ) was a jazz pianist and composer. Widely considered as one of the most important musicians in jazz – he is one of only five jazz musicians to be featured on the cover of Time – Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire.

    Dec 08,  · Criss-Cross might be the "happiest" album in Monk's discography, all the tunes ring out with a certain joy and ebullience that is not always out front and center on his other dekepinhygaltenemocamarselfge.coinfo of this has to be due to the growing connection that the players were experiencing, because let's face it, Monk's music could be challenging for even the most accomplished of musicians, and these guys are.
