Buddy Rich Big Band – Straight No Chaser

buddy rich

"Straight, No Chaser" is a jazz standard composed by Thelonious Monk. It was first recorded on Monk's Blue Note Sessions in 1951. It has been recorded numerous times by Monk and others and is one of Monk's most covered songs.1 It is a 12-bar blues in B♭ which, like one of his other B♭ blues, "Blue Monk", makes creative use of chromatics in the melody. Miles Davis recorded a famous version on his Milestones album, in which the tune is played in F rather than B♭.Covered here by the Buddy Rich Big Band on the Album "A Different Drummer" in 1971 for the RCA Records label.
