Thelonious Monk composed "In Walked Bud" in 1948, a tune which over time has become a standard among jazz musicians. In this paper a comparison of the improvisations of "In Walked Bud" is made to Monk's original solo, where the meaning of Jon Hendrick's lyrics came from, and in regard to these interpretations, where their influences came from if recognizable. The musicians examined are Clark Terry, Nneena Freelon, Dianne Reeves, and Howard Johnson from the album Monk on Monk.
In chapter 1, Monk's solo on his first recording of "In Walked Bud" is transcribed and analyzed. The lyrics written by Jon Hendricks are also reviewed. Chapter 2 focuses on transcriptions of solos by Terry, Freelon, Reeves, and Johnson, which are compared with Monk's improvisation. Since the songs are being played in the same style it will be determined whether the other musicians are emulating Monk's improvisational style or taking their own approach.
