Thelonious Monk - Round About Midnight


About The Video

This is a magnificent and particularly radical reading of his best known composition.

By the look of the set, this was a ‘60s European television program. The camera work is static, but always pointed in the right direction toward Monk and his hands.

Customer Comments

He never seemed to have the beat at his feet, but it was there in his head the whole time. Great stuff!
