In this lesson we will be learning a quintessential jazz standard by one of the most famous musicians in jazz - 'Round Midnight by Thelonious Monk. We'll be examining a very specific solo piano recording by Thelonious Monk himself and learning a modified transcription of the piece. This lesson will demonstrate how Monk himself uses chord shells extensively in his left hand, his use of stride, and his use of chord tones to improvise and embellish the melody.
