    transitions and Monk's modality was influenced by Art Tatum, and agree Monk was in a plane of his own, and sometime that plane flew past the twilight zone. I never like to consider greatest of anything although if I consider pure technique, I would consider Art Tatum to rival Horowitz on the keyboard, and that I would think would be the highest compliment you can bestow on any pianist.
