He’s The Loneliest Monkey

The melodic theme played under the lyric “And if you’d like to come and play you’ll see” is very reminiscent of Monk’s melody from his classic “‘Round Midnight” and is sung by co-writer Mark Oblinger. Click below to listen to a short sample.

 

“He’s the Loneliest Monkey” honors the incredibly imaginative playing and melodic sense of the great jazz pianist Thelonious Monk
