Not enough of that jazz
Thelonious Monk was an inspiration for countless avant-garde artists. Too bad a birthday homage to him came up short.
There are two kinds of birthday parties: the ones you attend to be polite, and the ones you attend because you adore the person of honor. Thelonious Monk's 95th birthday party was the second kind - the celebration took place at Tel Aviv's Levontin 7 club last week.
