Favorite Monk tune and recording thereof

  1. What's your favorite Thelonius Monk composition, and which version is your favorite? His music lends itself to endless reinterpretation, which is why he was a genius--and why I have a poster of him right above my bed.

    Mine would be "Ruby My Dear," and my favorite recording of it is from McCoy Tyner's 1975 album Trident, with Ron Carter and Elvin Jones.
