Michel Petrucciani – Round midnight
1993 – Stuttgarter Jazztage
‘Round Midnight” is a 1944 jazz standard by pianist Thelonious Monk.
It is thought that Monk originally composed the song sometime in 1940 or 1941. However, Harry Colomby claims that Monk may have written an early version around 1936 (at the age of 19) with the title “Grand Finale”. “‘Round Midnight” is the most-recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz musician. It appears in over 1000 albums.
