$5 MP3 Album Deal: Thelonious Monk Genius Of Modern Music: Vol 1

The aptly titled Genius Of Modern Music: Vol 1, which showcases the late, eccentric and innovate jazz pianist/composer Thelonious Monk, is on sale for $5.00 in MP3 format on right now at Amazon.

Showcasing his earliest recordings from 1947, Monk had a bright, breezy, yet assured style that he only got stronger with as his career pushed forward in the decades following these recordings, finding its zenith by the 1960s. Jazz aficionados will be impressed by the selection here on this Blue Note recording; what it lacks in sonic polish in terms of sound, it more than makes up for it in its sonic moxie. “Off Minor,” the wonderfully sublime and beautiful “Ruby My Dear,” the great “Well You Needn’t,” “Introspection,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and the jazz standard “Round Midnight” are just a sampling of all the classic tracks included within, many of which later became Monk staples when he became sort of an “elder statesman” of jazz later in his musical life.

Browse all 100 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99.
