A Tribute to Devotion
In 1957 Nellie Monk was having some difficulties with her thyroid and had to get surgery. In tribute, her husband, jazz piano legend Thelonious Monk, composed this song for her. Despite all of the stereotypes about artists being unpredictable (and maybe even unreliable) the Monks enjoyed a relationship that lasted decades. This song is a tribute to their devotion to each other.
