Blue Monk composed by Thelonious Monk. Arranged by Michael Sweeney. For Jazz Ensemble. Easy Jazz Ensemble Series. Grade 2. Score and parts. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.7010308).
One of the all-time great tunes by jazz legend Thelonious Monk. This arrangement by Michael Sweeney is an authentic adaptation using the original key (Bb) and preserving Monk's unique rhythmic phrases. The chart opens with a trumpet/tenor duet, however there is plenty of tutti ensemble playing and flexible solo sections over blues changes. This one is a must.
