Thelonious Sphere Monk was a towering figure in the story of modern jazz. His music is a challenge on any instrument and particularly for fingerstyle guitar. Duck Baker draws on his experience performing and arranging many jazz styles, from ragtime to free-jazz, in attempting to capture Monk's bittersweet harmonic feeling on the six strings of the guitar. Duck teaches arrangements of Blue Monk, Lulu's Back In Town, 'Round About Midnight and Light Blue. As a bonus, rare footage of Monk performing the first three tunes is included from a 1966 concert with his great quartet featuring Charlie Rouse.

Duck Baker's ability to clearly explain and demonstrate his arrangements in a clear and engaging fashion has been noted by both critics and students of his instructional videos, as have his exceptional talents as guitarists and arranger. This DVD is a unique guitar lesson that only Duck Baker could have put together.
