The Makrokosmos Quartet is comprised of two pianists and two percussionists, and although the work is dedicated to Thelonious Monk, the musicians stay true to themselves and play the compositions in their own style.

sample the album:
"Round Midnight is dedicated to Thelonious Monk, who is widely recognized for the percussive poetry of his very personal piano style and the unshakable authority of his compositions. The composers that Makrokosmos Quartet commissioned to write the music on this record all hold Monk's music dear, this pianist-composer-bandleader, but none of them have been swayed by affection to deny their own identity... Makrokosmos's players don't play like Monk. But like him, they want to be in that place of boundaries and transitions because in that place, endings are also beginnings, and in beginnings there is new life."-Bill Meyer
