Filmmaker Bruce Ricker couldn't believe his luck. Michael and Christian Blackwood's extensive 1968 footage of the groundbreaking modern jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, including the only footage of the very private Monk off stage was in excellent condition. Thelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser combines Blackwood's rare footage of Monk in studio, on tour, and behind the scenes with new interviews, archival photos and more to create a landmark aural and visual treat.
