When another tune was needed to complete Thelonious Monk’s 5 By Monk By 5 record in 1959, he practically wrote “Jackie-ing” on the spot. But he obviously enjoyed performing it, as he recorded it on ten further occasions, mostly live. Monk named the new tune after his niece, and based it on “When The Saints Go Marching In,” though the last detail is anything but obvious! This one sits well on guitar in its original key of Bb, and is a great example of how complex vertical harmony can obscure what is basically a simple chord progression.
