The Week is Link: The Advice of Thelonious Monk

March 12th, 2010 by admin

A journal entry of Thelonious Monk offering wisdom.  My favorite bits after the jump.

A note can be small as a pin or as big as the world, it depends on your imagination.

The inside of the tune (the bridge) is the part that makes the outside sound good.

Don’t play everything (or every time); let some things go by. Some music just imagined. What you don’t play can be more important that what you do.

A genius is the one most like himself.
