Happy Birthday, Thelonious Monk
The great pianist and composer would have turned 91 today.

The photo, left, is by noted jazz photographer Herb Snitzer. You can check out more of Herb's work and purchase pix of classic jazz artists by visiting Herb's site.
Herb graciously provided his work to the Monk in the Sun CD project that I produced several years ago.
His work was recently on display at the Sheldon Art Galleries in St. Louis, and will be featured Nov. 14 to Jan. 8 at the Arts Center in St. Petersburg.
