Round Midnight

One of the more accessible songs by Thelonious Monk is 'Round Midnight.

Monk's own version

Oscar Peter's version (more of a classical pianist's approach)

Miles Davis' version (with Coltrane)

For some reason I cannot articulate, the Davis version is more accessible than piano --- I don't mean "accessible" in a bad way, of course. I just prefer piano's sound is all.

Finally, a vocal version I also quite like ---
by Amy Winehouse
