Monk! : Thelonious, Pannonica, and the Friendship Behind a Musical Revolution Hardback

Description

She is Pannonica de Koenigswarter, British baroness of the Rothschild family.

He is Thelonious Sphere Monk, a musical genius fighting against the whims of his troubled mind.

Their enduring friendship begins in 1951 and ends only with Monk's death 1982. Set against the backdrop of New York in the 1950s, this graphic biography explores the rare alchemy between two brilliant beings separated by an ocean of social status, race, and culture, but united by an infinite love for music. Thoroughly researched by author Youssef Daoudi and rendered in his spontaneous, evocative pen and ink, Monk! seems to make visible jazz itself.
