Thelonious Monk’s Advice

Thelonious Monk Thelonious says, “It must always be night, otherwise they wouldn’t need the lights.” and “Don’t play everything (or every time); let some things go by. Some music just imagined. What you don’t play can be more important than what you do play.”

Of course he’s talking about music here, but he’s also talking about taste. And good advice about having good taste is relevant to just about anything we do.
