I have listened to Thelonius Monk for years, but I think this might be the first time I ever saw him play. He seems to be in touch with something out... there... somewhere. He was truly a great part of a great era in jazz. We won't see the likes of that again.
Always been a big fan of Monk (ya gotta love a guy whose middle name is "Sphere"). His brain was definitely wired differently, but I guess that would be the nature of genius.
That cross hand action is crazy, man.
He always sounds like he's trying to sneak up on the piano.
