One of the signature tunes from jazz legend Thelonious Monk is this quirky and iconic blues! This great-sounding version for big bands maintains the medium swing feel and "Monk-isms" from the original, but the arranger's own stamp of originality is exemplified with crafty ensemble lines, rhythmic twists, and some powerful full ensemble statements in mixed meters. Solos are included for tenor, trumpet and drums, along with marvelous writing for the entire band. Suggested solos are included along with chord/scale sheets in all keys. Highly effective!
