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.

    I like Monk's music, and I can already play two of his tunes. I learn a lot from his voicings which I then pump into my solos and arrangements. This book is great; I liked the price, the service and the careful packaging which meant the book arrived in...

    pristine condition, all the way from the U S of A to Australia!

    This book provides the themes and chords for a large number of Monk tunes. When combined with listening to the tunes and playing, it provides immediate access to the world of Monk. Highly recommended.

    The book is amazing! The charts are accurate, and the endnotes are insightful. It contains many songs not found in any Real (or fake) book. Every jazz musician should own this.
