Biography

Possessor of a unique tone along with a liquid bop-oriented design, Charlie Rouse is at Thelonious Monk’s Quartet for more than ten years (1959-1970) and, although somewhat overlooked, was a significant component in Monk’s music. Rouse was generally a modern participant and he caused Billy Eckstine’s orchestra (1944) as well as the initial Dizzy Gillespie big music group (1945), producing his documenting debut with Tadd Dameron in 1947. Rouse popped up in a whole lot of important organizations including Duke Ellington’s Orchestra (1949-1950), Count number Basie’s octet (1950), on classes with Clifford Dark brown in 1953, along with Oscar Pettiford’s sextet (1955). He co-led the Jazz Settings with Julius Watkins (1956-1959), and became a member of Monk for ten years of considerable touring and recordings. In the 1970s he documented several albums like a innovator, and in 1979 he joined up with Sphere. Charlie Rouse’s exclusive sound started to finally get some good recognition through the 1980s. He participated on Carmen McRae’s traditional Carmen Sings Monk recording and his last documenting was at a Monk tribute concert.
