Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This first full-length biography of the legendary pianist/composer in English tells the story of the tragic life and creative genius of Thelonius Monk. Based on scores of interviews with his family, friends and compatriots, along with voluminous research, this book gives the reader insight into the elusive and often eccentric personality of the composer. It paints a vivid picture of the difficulties faced by a serious jazz performer in the 50s and 60s who had to battle to overcome racism to make his mark as a musician. Beautifully illustrated with rare photos.
