Obama-Monk Inaugural Suite

I offer you this musical mash-up of the great Thelonious Monk's Straight No Chaser combined with excerpts of Barack Obama's 2013 Inaugural Speech. I am not making any political statement here. Please just consider this a commemorative audio souvenir of this historic event, and an interesting fusion of Jazz and the spoken word.

Thelonious Monk  piano; Barack Obama – voice; Thad Jones – cornet; Sam Jones – bass; Charlie Rouse – tenor saxophone; Art Taylor – drums
