About Charlie Rouse

Charlie Rouse (April 6, 1924 - November 30, 1988) was an American hard bop tenor saxophonist and flautist.Born in Washington, DC, his work with Thelonious Monk's quartet, a period which lasted from 1959 to 1970 became highly influential simply due to his proximity to Monk. He was later a founding member of the group Sphere, which began as a tribute to Monk. He also worked with Mal Waldron's quintet. When performing, Rouse moved very little, looked straight ahead, and wore a solemn expression.Charlie Rouse died from lung cancer at University Hospital in Seattle at the age of 64.
The asteroid "(10426) Charlierouse" was officially named to honor Charlie Rouse in 2007 by its discoverer, the American planetary scientist and astronomer Joe Montani, a Monk and Rouse fan. The asteroid is in the main-belt of asteroids. Asteroid "(11091) Thelonious" was named earlier by Montani. Each asteroid has an orbital period of about 4 years, and is about 10 kilometers in size.
