Description

An audio recording of "'Round About Midnight," composed by Thelonious Monk (1917-1982), Bernie Hanighen (1908-1976), and Cootie Williams (1911-1985), and performed by Larry Coryell (b. 1943) live on-air on WUCF-FM on June 8, 1999. Coryell is an American jazz fusion guitarist, composer, and one of the pioneers of jazz-rock, a fusion genre that combines elements of blues, rock, country, and bop. Considered by many to be one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Coryell has shared the stage with Miles Davis (1926-1991) and Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970). He has remained active since the 1960s, recording over 100 albums. "'Round About Midnight" was first recorded by Miles Davis in 1955 and released on his album of the same name in 1957. It is the most recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz musician.
