Idiosyncratic pianist, composer, and arranger (1917–1982) who takes a place among the most innovative and influential figures of modern jazz. Solo Monk album signed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, “Good luck always, Thelonious Monk.” Partial separation to top edge, scattered light soiling and wear to covers, and a mild ‘ring of wear’ to front cover, otherwise fine condition. The record is included. Released in 1965, Solo Monk was heralded as the choice album to have from Monk’s solo work. Monk is quite rare in any form, particularly in signed albums. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
