The estate of Thelonious Monk will release an NFT collection

The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.

Thelonious Monk’s collaborators have announced the launch of an NFT collection. It will be released with the approval of his estate.

Monk (1917-1982) is one of the best jazz musicians of all time. His main instrument was the piano, and his compositions and improvisations were unique in the history of the genre. Thelonious is the second most recorded jazz arranger in the world, following Duke Ellington. 

The NFT collection is a way to pay tribute to the works of Thelonious Monk and keep them forever on the blockchain. Thanks to T.S Monk, his son, people will now have an opportunity to participate in the history of music by purchasing an NFT. 

Thelonious’ music comes with the artworks created by the GIF artist Javier Arrés. He will share his vision of Monk’s music through the reinterpretation of the cover of the “Underground” album. The collection will be released with the support of MakersPlace, an NFT marketplace. 

Two types of NFTs make part of the collection. The first ones are 1/1 audio-visual paintings, called “Theloniopolis.” The second is an open version of audiovisual paintings, named “Metro Monk”. 

Thelonious Monk NFT goes live on May 19th, at 3:30 PM PT, on MakersPlace.
