Blue Monk

Blue Monk

Series: Jazz Ensemble Library Score & Parts Composer: Thelonious Monk Arranger: Mark Taylor

Level: 4

One of the signature tunes from jazz legend Thelonious Monk is this quirky and iconic blues! Mark's great-sounding version for big band maintains the medium swing feel and “Monk-isms” from the original, but he adds his own stamp of originality with crafty ensemble lines, rhythmic twists, and some powerful full band statements in mixed meters. Solos are included for tenor, trumpet and drums, along with marvelous writing for the entire band.
