All compositions by Thelonious Monk, except for "Let's Cool One," by Theolonious Monk and Denzel Best

Tracks 1-8, 10, published by Thelonious Music Corporation (BMI). Track 12 published by Thelonious Music Corporation/Warner Chappell & Co (BMI). Tracks 2 and 11 published by Embassy Music, Inc. (BMI). Track 9 published by Second Floor Music (BMI).

Pianist Fred Hersch has a very different style than Thelonious Monk did, and on this solo tribute CD, he does not attempt to closely emulate Monk. Hersch does hint at Thelonious in spots on the 13 Monk compositions, but mostly performs in a sparse, melodic and quietly playful manner. His interpretations of such songs as "In Walked Bud," "Ask Me Now," "Let's Cool One" and "Misterioso" (which he calls "Five Views of Misterioso") are tasteful yet full of subtle invention. A pleasing and respectful effort.

With Thelonious: Fred Hersch Plays Monk, the noted pianist, composer, and arranger Fred Hersch examines works by one of the jazz world's most legendary keyboard innovators, Thelonious Monk, with a dozen tunes by the enigmatic genius. The conservatory-trained Hersch brings a wealth of insight and experience to the material, shedding new light on Monk's legacy.

Opening with the classic "Round Midnight," Thelonious presents a wide range of Monk masterpieces, from the dissonant balladry of "Crepuscule with Nellie" to the playful stride of "Let's Cool One." Hersch cites Monk's "sense of structure, his sense of the beat and his sense of humor" as being influential. Hersch believes that making a solo Monk record, of which there are few, other than those by Monk himself, allowed him to be much more personal with the music.
