thelonious monk biography

” First recorded in 1954, it was named for Monk’s niece “Weetee” but the title was lost in translation. It was mistitled “Manganese” when Monk recorded it in France in 1954. His producer, André Francis, came up with the title as a French-speaking pun on “Monk at Ease”. And, of course, it refers to the mineral. “
