« Off Minor » was actually  debuted in january of 1947 by Bud Powell, not by Monk who first recorded it in October of 1947. Also, Dizzy Gillespie‘s big band had intended on using it in their book. It stands among Monk’s more frequently recorded tunes. It is so named probably because it is written in G minor but never resolves on the tonic.
