The name Thelonious Monk conjures images of a dancing sprite wearing funny hats and evokes the sound of singularly shaped melodies. But the more one digs beneath the veneer of this jazz giant, the more one realizes that Monk was an uncompromising genius who created a unique musical language, resonating with beauty, energy and humor. Although much has been written about Thelonious Monk, a new biography published in 2009, Thelonious Monk, the Life and Times of an American Original, is a meticulously researched tome by Robin D.G. Kelley and has quickly lapped the others to become the authoritative source.
