Photo-finish Friday: out and about

Chance found me recently on Grand Avenue near 17th Street in LA, and I came upon this tribute to Thelonious Monk. It's a little worse for wear but doesn't lack the original spirit. A quick search online, and I was able to turn up the photo it was based on. Click here.

Photo-finish Friday is the bright idea of Leah Utas over at The Goat's Lunch Pail.

Coming up: James Stewart, Maureen O'Hara, The Rare Breed (1966)


  1. Love Monk. His 'Round Midnight's one of the first jazz cuts I knew.

    1. A favorite of mine, too. I like the Miles Davis version.
