The compositions and musicianship of George Gershwin and Thelonious Monk have long been mainstays of jazz. Many of Gershwin’s songs, such as “Summertime,” “The Man I Love,” and “Rhapsody In Blue” became timeless classics. Monk’s compositions “Round Midnight,” “Blue Monk,” and “Well, You Needn’t” were always challenging yet accessible. Together these artists created sounds that will last forever in our hearts.
