Guh. Buh. Gibber. Totally falling in love with Thelonious Monk's songwriting. Before I checked out a copule CDs from the library, all I had heard was "Blue Monk". Guh. "Ruby, My Dear", "I Mean You", "In Walked Bud", "Epistrophy", "Straight, No Chaser", "Well You Needn't"... I'm especially astounded by how fun, how joyful, how smirking, how joking he makes blues sound, not to mention the rhythms, the whole-tone scale virtuosity...
