Format: Audio CD
Concord's 10-track disc provides an introduction to Monk's mid-50s recordings for the Prestige and Riverside labels. Collected here are prime examples of Monk in mid-career as an iconoclastic pianist, writer of jazz standards, and a band leader who attracted spectacular players to his sessions. Among the notable compositions are "Blue Monk," "Ruby, My Dear" and "'Round Midnight," and the sessions are highlighted by the talents of Percy Heath, Art Blakey, Clark Terry, Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Paul Chambers, John Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, Roy Haynes and many more. This is neither a full-telling of Monk's career, which also included key recordings on Blue Note and Columbia, nor of his entire six year run on Prestige and Riverside (the original albums of which are mostly still in print); but for an introduction to Monk's music, this is a good place to start.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this album. It was a great collection of his tunes from various albums, and it seems that the best tune off each album was used for this album. The clarity of the tunes was excellent, and the selection of the tunes for this album were just wonderful.

Monk is a hard man to understand, but once you understand him he is just something else to behold. On of the tunes he had some great sidemen playing with him.

Yes, I would really recommend this album for any one that has a true affection for Jazz Music.

Morehouse 1960.

This is a wonderful, wide ranging collection of the best of Thelonius Monk. It includes the whole span of his music, from early to late in his career.
