Thelonious Monk was a very unique Jazz musician during this time period. He had no certain pattern to his music and was also unique in many ways. Most of his music were very interesting to play and interesting. In this way there were many factors about his music that were very modernist. First of all due to the way he plays his music are very puzzling to the listeners. Although some might not know what he is doing or what he is up to, if you listen carefully you can see that he is following some sort of key signature. Secondly, his style of music was very new during this time peirod. Not many Jazz Musicians were not disorganized (not in a bad way) like he was.
