Artist: Monk, Thelonious
Description:
Personnel: Thelonious Monk (piano); Thelonious Monk; Ray Copeland (trumpet); Wilbur Ware (upright bass); Gigi Gryce (alto saxophone); Coleman Hawkins, John Coltrane (tenor saxophone); Art Blakey, Shadow Wilson (drums). Audio Remasterer: Joe Tarantino. Liner Note Author: Orrin Keepnews. Recording information: Reeves, Sound Studios, New York, NY. Photographers: Esmond Edwards; Bob Parent. Arranger: Thelonious Monk. This fine two-disc set brings together all the recordings Thelonious Monk made for the small, influential Riverside label in 1957. The piano eccentric cut excellent versions of some of his best compositions during that year, including "Off Minor," "Epistrophy," "Well, You Needn't," and the lovely "Ruby My Dear." The exhilarating saxophone work of John Coltrane makes these dates instant classics. Like most "complete sessions," the set features plenty of false starts and alternate takes that might seem extraneous to the casual fan, but Monk fanatics will be overjoyed at being provided with a glimpse into the brilliant artist's studio process.
