"A Tribute to the Music of Thelonious Monk" By Niklaus Troxler, 1986. Color silkscreen poster. 128 x 89.8 cm (50 3/8 x 35 3/8 in.): In this poster for a tribute concert to jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, Troxler tried to visualize the composer’s favorite composition, “Round Midnight.” Originally trained as a typographer, Troxler ultimately outlined Monk’s recognizable, goateed profile with brightly colored lettering. Monk, who transformed jazz with discordant, bebop experimentation, was “after new chords, new ways of syncopating, new figurations, new runs.” Troxler’s unexpected compositions and dazzling color combinations pay tribute to Monk’s legacy of improvisation.
