Thelonious Monk - Alone In San Francisco

Thelonious Monk - Alone in San Francisco
Outrageous piano playing, eccentric behavior, mental illness and crazy hats. According to rumors, he once got in a fist fight with Miles Davis when Miles told him to sit out of a session because his piano playing was too hard to improvise over. He also refused to talk to Art Blakey on tour because he "was too ugly."
