The collaboration of Art Blakey and Thelonius Monk during the 1950s is considered one of the most memorable events in jazz music. Some of Blakey's early records were made with Thelonius Monk and the two blended superbly. It has been said that Blakey adapted Monk's bop style and reduced it to his elements. Rhythm is essential in jazz music and if one develops its role, one develops jazz music as well. As a whole, Monk's recording can be compared with the ones created by the best jazz artists.
