The music of Thelonious Monk is among the most requested of any jazz composer, but accurate lead sheets and sources have never been widely available – until now. This folio has 70 of the master composer/pianist's most familiar pieces, as well as a number of obscure and unrecorded tunes, in easy-to-read versions. Includes counterlines and ensemble parts for many pieces, as well as bass-lines and piano voicings where applicable. Also includes a biography, a glossary, and a definitive discography of the compositions in the book. Titles include: Ask Me Now • Bemsha Swing • Blue Monk • Blue Sphere • Boo Boo's Birthday • Bright Mississippi • Brilliant Corners • Bye-Ya • Crepuscule With Nellie • Criss Cross • 52nd Street Theme • Functional • Gallop's Gallop • Hackensack • I Mean You • In Walked Bud • Jackie-ing • Let's Cool One • Little Rootie Tootie • Misterioso • Monk's Mood • Nutty • Off Minor • Pannonica • Played Twice • Rhythm-a-ning • 'Round Midnight • Ruby, My Dear • Straight No Chaser • Thelonious • Well You Needn't • and 39 more.
