Yes! Finally a Thelonious Monk thread. Criss-Cross is a great album, but how about Monk's Blues with genious songs like "Reflections", "Monk's Point", and "Brilliant Corners." Now that's some ear candy! There's also Straight, No Chaser which is another amazing album.

i have criss cross on vinyl - great song but my favourites are Crepuscle with Nellie, Monks Mood and Straight, No Chaser
the book called Straight, No Chaser is a really good read too.
