First recorded by jazz piano great Thelonious Monk for the 1952 album “Thelonious Monk Trio,” “Bemsha Swing” has since become a jazz standard. Fusion guitar player Larry Coryell is among the many who have done covers, but even non-jazz artists like the Red Hot Chili Peppers have toured with the standard.
Woody Shaw, whom NPR once called “the last great trumpet innovator,” collaborated with Mal Waldron, Chick Corea, Art Blakey, McCoy Tyner and Freddie Hubbard.
