Miles Okazaki performs Work: the compositions of Thelonious Monk for solo guitar. Miles Okazaki was armed only with his solo guitar when he recorded all 70 known compositions by Thelonious Monk. It’s an undertaking of such ambition, even Monk never got there. Okazaki speaks of the work in visual, special terms – “It’s like a crystal…it’s got all these angles inside of it…It’s three-dimensional…And it’s African rhythmically.”
