Yoko Ono is a top 5 Rock vocalist of all time for her performances on Fly alone

I appreciate her even more every year that I listen to music

"Don't Worry Kyoko" is amazing! Yoko and her 16-track voice, as John said.

Don’t Count the Waves is special to me

I’m proud to say I always loved Yoko. Even as a kid. I always saw John’s murder through her eyes.

Oh thanks for reminding me, her work has been on my list of things to listen to for a long time but I kept forgetting. Fly is indeed incredible

Maybe this will get OH back on the boards, or at least he'll respond in a few months.

...

Most Thelonius Monk records, if not all, are very boring and bland. I just can't get into him although I respect his career. Maybe it's just solo piano I have an issue with. I haven't found a great Monk record yet.

I love Monk, he has a beautiful, meandering way of playing. The first Jazz musician I got into.

I'm not entirely on board with this...but everyone does know that Barrelhouse Chuck was a better pianist than Monk ever was.

“Part of jazz is the illusion of spontaneity and Monk played the piano as though he’d never seen one before. Came at it from all angles, using his elbows, taking chops at it, rippling through the keys like they were a deck of cards, fingers jabbing at them like they were hot to the touch or tottering around them like a woman in heels – playing it all wrong as far as classic piano went. Everything came out crooked, at an angle, not as you expected. . . He played each note as though astonished by the previous one, as though every touch of his fingers on the keyboard was correcting an error and this touch in turn became an error to be corrected and so the tune never quite ended up the way it was meant to. Sometimes the song seemed to have turned inside out or to have been constructed entirely from mistakes. His hands were like two racquetball players trying to wrong-foot each other; he was always wrong-fingering himself. But a logic was operating, a logic unique to Monk: if you always played the least expected note a form would emerge, a negative imprint of what was initially anticipated. You always felt that at the heart of the tune was a beautiful melody that had come out back to front, the wrong way around. Listening to him was like watching someone fidget; you felt uncomfortable until you started doing it too.”
