Thelonious Monk at the Precise Moment His Hat Began to Rise


Thelonious Monk, for those of you who don't know, is hands down one of the damned finest jazz pianists ever. I love his music, the lightness of it, the rhythmic playfulness and the incredible skill. To me Jazz equates a bit to what I am tying to do visually, it's like saying, “Look, we don't have to follow any damn rules at all, we'll just do exactly what we want and it will be great.”
