4. Three Wishes

is a book of intimate photos of jazz musicians taken by the Baroness Pannonica de Koenigswarter (or "Nica" as her friends knew her), and many musicians' responses to her question "If you could have three wishes granted immediately, what would they be?" There are many great photos of Monk and other musicians in the book.

5. Thank you, Mr Scorpio

Love Thelonious Monk, always have. I'm glad I dropped by one last time and caught it.

Take care.

6. Epistrophy -Denmark 1966



This is toward the end of the taping. It shows something we hear but don't often see -the focus, the intensity, the effort. Sometimes jazz is just damned hard work.

9. As far as I know I own everything Monk every recorded.

Listen to him daily on my earphones when I walk

He is a God.

Go listen to 'round Midnight - for or five different recordings by him. Although they are the same melodically, the way he shatters and reinvents the chords that surround that melody is different in each one.

I've been listening to him for 35 years and am surprised by something every time I listen

His price for admission is that you have to leave your preconceived notions of what music can really be at the door

IIRC, 'Round midnight is the most recorded tune in Jazz history.

He's like Bach on acid, thrown out the window.
