Today’s broadcast is centered around the piece STRAIGHT, NO CHASER, composed by pianist Thelonious Monk. It is in fact a blues theme, but with capricious phrasing because of the different changes in timing. Performances by: Thelonious Monk Quartet, Miles Davis, Gil Evans Orchestra, Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer, Art Pepper, Bill Holman Big Band, and Gerry Mulligan with Monk.
