Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917–82), American jazz pianist & 2nd-most recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, also known for his distinctive style in suits, hats & sunglasses. His unorthodox approach used dissonant harmonies, angular melodic twists, combined with a highly percussive attack & abrupt, dramatic use of silences & hesitations. By 2010, he was 1 of 5 jazz musicians featured on the cover of Time, after Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, & Duke Ellington, & before Wynton Marsalis.
