We kick off a new series called "Central." We’ll be road tripping up Central Avenue, from South Mountain to North Mountain over the next few weeks.
Thelonious Monk was a pianist and composer and iconoclast who wrote some of jazz's most recorded tunes. Hear Dennis Rowland sing 'Round Midnight and Art Blakey do In Walked Bud, learn what made Monk so unique tonight on the 9 O'clock Special. Plus dig Ray Brown and some High Heel Sneakers to start things off when jazz awakes at 8.
