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.

    New Real Book. But this is more than just a collection of 70 Monk compositions (the most yet in a single publication), but a handbook or guide for studying Monk's music. It includes an extensive discography of recordings by Thelonious Monk. The nearly ten pages of the Notation Guide is both technically useful and insightful. This is the best Monk book yet.
