Thelonious Monk, jazz pianist (piano, composer), born 10 October 1917 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, United States, and died 17 February 1982 in Englewood, New Jersey, United States.
“If you really understand the meaning of bebop, you understand the meaning of freedom.”
“Monk was a gentle person, gentle and beautiful, but he was strong as an ox. And if I had ever said something about punching Monk out in front of his face Ð and I never did Ð then somebody should have just come and got me and taken me to the madhouse, because Monk could have just picked my little ass up and thrown me through a wall.”
