A realjazz musician.. I just can'tthink of any rock music were I can hear the Monk influence ... He is much to good to be down graded to rock...

Monk himself would consider it a downgrade, just fyi.

I've really come around to appreciate Thelonious Monk's music. Just listened to Brilliant Corners on the ride home from work just yesterday. I especially admire how he allowed each bandmate to shine on solos. Clark Terry, who just recently passed away, does a thrilling trumpet solo on Bemsha Swing.
