(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great DVD mainly featuring interviews with Monk's friends and family, providing fascinating info about the man. However on my wish-list is a comprehensive DVD of Monk's performances (there seems to be plenty of footage) WITHOUT any talking over his playing!. I am much more interested in Monk's music than in the art of the video-editor. Classical musicians can expect all of their performances to be seen and heard, jazz on video should be treated the same. Particularily as watching Monk play live adds a great deal to appreciating his music, his timing, improvisational skills and generally pushing it to the edge !"
I love Monk and this video

"I've watched this three times and look forward to my next viewing again. Features interviews with many of his contemporaries including Billy Taylor, Marion White, Barry Harris and his son Thelonious Mon Jr., as well as lots of footage of the master himself playing. I'm a huge Monk fan, and I found this fascinating and very informative on what made this genius tick. Highly recommended."
