Straight, No Chaser: Theolonius Monk


July 18, 2017
03:00 PM until 06:00 PM


Directed by Charolette Zwerin with music composed by Dick Hyman

Along with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, pianist Thelonious Monk is credited as the pioneering musician of bebop and is the second most recorded jazz composer in the world. This documentary tries to unravel Monk, who was known as having a thorny personality and an aggressive playing technique to match. Interviews with Monk's son and fellow musicians shed some light, and performance footage from a European tour captures his idiosyncratic style.
