This is a list of compositions by jazz musician Thelonious Monk. A contrafact based loosely on rhythm changes in C, and was copyrighted by Monk under the title Nameless in April 1944. The tune was also called Bip Bop by Monk, and he claims that the tune's latter title was the origin of the genre-defining name bebop. It quickly became popular as an opening and closing tune on the clubs on 52nd Street on Manhattan where Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker played. It was first recorded by Dizzy.

Okazaki performs the complete Thelonious Monk songbook. 70 tunes in total. The accomplishment here is not the 4 hours and 44 minutes of music, but Okazaki's dedication to the Monk oeuvre. The only other artists to take on the complete songbook are pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach's Quintet on Monk's Casino Intakt, 2005. Did you notice that Okazaki is a guitarist. There are several recordings of Monk practicing his compositions, and the multiple takes available on a release like Monk Alone: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings 1962-1968 Columbia, 1998, to give insight into the great man's process. Okazaki spent an entire year submersed in Monk's world. Thelonious Sphere Monk October 10, 1917 February 17, 1982 was an American jazz pianist and composer. The Composer is a collection featuring previously issued Thelonious Monk recordings made during his six-year 1962-1968 stint with Columbia Records. The spotlight is on Monk performing his own works in a variety of contexts and settings ranging from solo piano to fully orchestrated - in the studio as well as in front of an audience. This volume is equally a testament to the inventiveness and elasticity of the compositions as it is to The Composer. He recorded the Monk trio playing compositions by Duke Ellington, in 1955, and followed that album early the next year with one of the trio performing standards from what wasnt yet called the Great American Songbook. Those albums offer delightful shocks, such as the Name That Tune trouble that Monk so gleefully provokes with his radical rearrangements of familiar melodies. The big-band recording, live in Town Hall, from 1959, puts the compositions front and center the arrangements, by Hall Overton, have a buoyant directness that highlights the sheer delight, the instant if belated classicism, that Monks compositions represent.
