Wikipedia : This day ( February 17, 1982), in Englewood, New Jersey, died Thelonious Sphere Monk, an American jazz pianist and composer.
Official Site : His musical vision was both ahead of its time and deeply rooted in tradition, spanning the entire history of the music from the stride masters of James P. Johnson and Willie the Lion Smith to the tonal freedom and kinetics of the avant garde.
@allmusic : . Thelonious Monk, who was criticized by observers who failed to listen to his music on its own terms, suffered through a decade of neglect before he was suddenly acclaimed as a genius; his music had not changed one bit in the interim.
@last.fm : His compositions and improvisations are full of dissonant harmonies and angular melodic twists, and are impossible to separate from Monk’s unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of silences and hesitations.
@Discogs : He was also renowned for his distinctively sartorial style in suits, hats and his trademark sunglasses. He was also well known for his actions on stage during performances.
