You can find a few interpretations of the song online; we recommend:

George N. Gianopoulos

Listen to a performance of "Fughetta on Monk's 'Well You Needn't'," followed by a recording of Thelonius Monk, playing his own theme:

You may notice that Gianopoulos' tempo is marked "Moderate Swing" and with the complexities of contrapuntal writing, it would indeed be an exercise in frustration to try and match Monk's original tempo in the Fughetta version.

And finally, our "Look Back" feature is an arrangement of Bach's Fugue in B-flat Minor as a study companion to the Fughetta above.

Here is a recording by Svatislav Richter. The fugue starts at 2:25.
