Friday, October 10, 2008

Today marks the anniversary of the birth of one of the masters of American music, visionary pianist and composer Thelonious Monk. As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us in this edition of the Fishko Files, listening to Monk’s music can be habit forming, as well as life-changing. It certainly was for Jason Moran.
