Jazz in AthensCharlie Rouse Sr. (April 6, 1924 – November 30, 1988) was an American hard bop tenor saxophonist and flautist. His career is marked by the collaboration for more than ten years with Thelonious Monk.Rouse was born in Washington, DC in 1924. At first he worked with the clarinet, before turning to the saxophone. He is best remembered for having worked with Thelonious Monk for eleven years, from 1959 to 1970, as the saxophonist of the Thelonious Monk Quartet. He adapted his playing style, moving away from the usual bop to match Monk’s music. Prior to working with Monk he was a member of big bands, those of Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie, and Duke Ellington and also worked with Clifford Brown, Count Basie and others.Later, in the 1980s, he was a founding member of the group Sphere, which began as a tribute to Monk. He also worked with Mal Waldron’s quintet.Charlie Rouse died from lung cancer at University Hospital in Seattle at the age of 64.CarrerBilly Eckstine Orchestra: 1944;Dizzy Gillespie Big Band: 1945;Duke Ellington Orchestra: 1949-1950;Count Basie Octet: 1950;Bull Moose Jackson And His Buffalo Bearcats: 1953;Oscar Pettiford Sextet: 1955;The Thelonious Monk Quartet: 1959 – 1970DiscographyAs leaderThe Chase Is On, 1957, Bethlehem.Takin’ Care Of Business, 1960, Prestige.Unsung Hero, 1960-61, Epic.Yeah!, 1960, EpicBossa Nova Bacchanal, 1962, Blue Note.Two is One, 1973, Strata-East Records.Moment’s Notice, 1977, Storyville.Cinammon Flower, 1977, Rykodisc.Upper Manhattan Jazz Society, 1981, Enja.Social Call, 1984, Uptown.Epistrophy, 1988, LandmarkSoul Mates (featuring Sahib Shihab)Brazil, 2005, Douglas RecordsAs sidemanWith Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note, 1953)With Benny CarterFurther Definitions (1961)With Sonny ClarkLeapin’ and Lopin’ (1961)With Bennie GreenBennie Green Blows His Horn (1955)Back on the Scene (1958)With Thelonious MonkMonk in France (1961)Criss Cross (1962)Monk’s Dream (1963)Live at the It Club (1964)Straight, No Chaser (1966)Underground (1968)With Louis SmithSmithville (1958)With Mal WaldronThe Git Go – Live at the Village Vanguard (Soul Note, 1986) July 2, 2020 Charlie RouseJr TheRouselegacy C.E.O.1!!🎶🎼✌️😎👍🏼 June 5, 2020 This Post Has One Comment Howard West 31 Oct 2020 Reply Education Leave a Reply Cancel replyCommentEnter your name or username to comment Enter your email address to comment Enter your website URL (optional) Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
