    Last year I got a bout of the (regular) flu. For nearly two weeks the only thing I could was listen to was Monk... I added to my collection the Complete Columbia Studio Albums and the Columbia Live albums. It was Monk 24/7...
    After reading the incredible Thelonious Monk by Robin D.G. Kelley, I decided, in March of this year, to take a drive to see the Weehawken NJ home that Monk lived in during the last years of his life...
    But then the virus took care of that...

    I love listening to Monk, always makes me smile.
    It's sad to think how difficult his life was. Yet he produced such jaunty and joyful music along with some beautifully haunting melodies.
