A Message from Orrin Keepnews

March 5, 2013

“That truth is that Thelonious is important because he exists, because he and his music form an immense, unavoidable and inevitable presence, like an Alp or the Mississippi River or summer.”

–from Orrin Keepnews’s notes on the back of Monk’s album Straight, No Chaser
