"I'm famous, ain't that a bitch." Thus opens the soundtrack of the only documentary on the life of Thelonious Sphere Monk. Monk is an immensely important figure in 20th century music, not only as a virtuoso jazz pianist, but also one of the most innovative composers of any musical form. Although far from comprehensive, the soundtrack nevertheless achieves a satisfying cross-section of Monk tunes, from the infectious clunkiness of "Pannonica" and "Trinkle, Tinkle" to the painfully beautiful blue tones of the aptly named "Ugly Beauty."
