REWIND & PLAY
In December 1969 the jazz musician Thelonious Monk was filmed before a concert in Paris by a crew from French television – and found himself confronted by distressing repetition and stereotypes. What did Monk do? He gave a taciturn response, held his peace – and played the piano. Archive footage shows a sensitive and exceptional artist and a person who lives entirely for his music.
