MONK Thelonious

MONK THELONIOUS “SPHERE” (P-COMP)

Rocky Mount, North Carolina. 10/10/1917. – Weehawken, New Jersey. 17/2/1982.

Ha iniziato a suonare il pianoforte nei party ed in seguito ha accompagnato una predicatrice. Il debutto ufficiale nel 1939 nel quartetto di Keg Purnell. Dal 1941 ha frequentato il Minton’s Playhouse ed insieme a Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker e Kenny Clarke, ha costruito le basi del be bop e del Jazz moderno. Ha suonato anche con Lucky Millinder, ha registrato con Coleman Hawkins, Cootie Williams, Gerry Mulligan, Charlie Christian, Skippy Williams e nella grande orchestra di Dizzy Gillespie. Nel 1958 ha ottenuto un contratto al famoso club “Five Spot” di New York. Purtroppo è incappato in un arresto per detenzione e per uso di droghe e quindi gli è stato proibito di lavorare nei club della città. Ha avuto l’aiuto della mecenate Baronessa Nica de Koenigswater e nel 1954 ha partecipato al Festival del Jazz di Parigi. Nel 1957 è tornato in modo trionfale al Five Spot di New York insieme a John Coltrane, ha suonato anche con Johnny Griffin e Roy Haynes. Nel 1958 è stato nuovamente arrestato e, rilasciato nel 1959, ha formato un quartetto con Charlie Rouse, Sam Jones e Art Taylor con il quale si è esibito in tutto il mondo. Nel 1970 il gruppo è cambiato con Pat Patrick, Paul Jeffrey e con Thelonious Monk Jr. alla batteria. Nel 1971 una lunga tournée con i “Giants Of Jazz”. Questo è stato l’ultimo atto della sua carriera; dal 1972 si è chiuso in se stesso sino alla morte. Soprannominato “Sphere”. Pianista dalla tecnica particolare, ma dotato di grande gusto e straordinaria immaginazione. Ci ha lasciato delle magnifiche composizioni che mettono a dura prova la fantasia degli esecutori con il loro salti ritmici e le loro particolari architetture. Le sue libere improvvisazioni degli anni ’40 sono state capite appieno solo verso la fine degli anni ’50. Egli ha usato il pianoforte come uno strumento a fiato, le sue improvvisazioni sono affreschi che anticipano il free-jazz, con i suoi stravolgimenti di melodia, armonia e ritmo.
