Tommy Flanagan – Thelonica (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Thelonica is an album by pianist Tommy Flanagan featuring compositions by Thelonious Monk recorded in 1982 for the Enja label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
Recorded just ten months after Thelonious Monk’s death, pianist Tommy Flanagan’s tribute features eight of Monk’s compositions plus Flanagan’s own “Thelonica.” Assisted by bassist George Mraz and drummer Art Taylor, Flanagan does not sound at all like Monk but he recaptures his spirit and hints strongly now and then at his style on this fine (and often introspective) outing.
