Composed by Thelonious Monk and first recorded in 1951, jazz standard “Straight, No Chaser” is maybe the most covered of the pianist's songs. Other artists who have done covers include Oliver Nelson, Bud Powell, Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett.
Julian “Cannonball” Adderley is perhaps most famous for his '60s single “Mercy Mercy Mercy” – and for his work with Miles Davis. His brother, cornet player Nat Adderley, also plays in this performance.
