Thelonious Monk: American Composer by Matthew Sieg (1991, 59 min.). Explore how Monk’s remarkable music originated from a mixture of composition, orchestration, and improvisation. Filmed largely in the ruins of Minton’s Playhouse, the Harlem nightclub where Monk and others pioneered their new sound, the documentary offers insights into the creative and biographical aspects of modern music’s most elusive genius.
