Thelonious Monk

Thelonious Sphere Monk (October 10, 1917 � February 17, 1982) was a jazz pianist and composer.

He is known for his unique improvisational style and many contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including his classic work 'Round Midnight. Monk is often regarded as a founder of bebop although his playing style evolved away from the form.
