Straight, No Chaser On An Open Thread


Robert Spencer here with some Monk for you. The picture is not so great. But dig the music, man. This is Thelonious Monk, a true American original, on piano, playing his incandescent classic “Straight, No Chaser,” with the underrated Charlie Rouse on tenor sax.

Steve Lacy, the world’s premier soprano saxophonist and foremost Monk acolyte, said: “Monk’s music has profound humanity, disciplined economy, balanced virility, and exuberant wit.”

And a beat like a tidal wave.

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.

Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.

Please contribute here.
