Charlie Rouse - when Sunny Gets Blue

The beauty of Rouse.

Rouse is an abiding influence: to me he was the quintessential player for Monk: the musical relationship ought to have been an entire chapter in Robin Kelley's otherwise excellent book; and much more ought to be said in musical circles of Rouse's ability to blend swing and bop phraseologies in a cogent and individual language.
