Thelonious Monk Piano Solo - Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

A good friend of mine is wild about this song. I thought that I'd give her a sense of how many different acts have done the song since it appeared in the Broadway show "Roberta" in 1933. Guess which version she liked best (after the Platters 1958 hit that is)?

That's right. Mr. T. Monk!
