Music for Commuting: Monk Monk Monk Monk Monk

Five drives to work, five Monk albums - Plays Duke Ellington, The Unique Thelonious Monk, Brilliant Corners, Thelonious Himself, Monk's Music. This week I started working my way through the 15 albums Thelonious Monk recorded for Riverside. Of the Riverside albums, it's the earlier albums with which I'm most familiar -  The Unique Thelonious Monk being the exception. After many years in hibernation, I've been listening to Monk on a far more regular basis over the last few years. A most worthwhile re-exploration.
