Recorded by Jimmy Giuffre with a table-top one-track recorder in a nightclub, this mono treasure with more than a couple of audio drop-outs is one of the ten CD's I'd take to a deserted island.

Magnificent interpretation of Monk by his best students (thus, 'School Days'), all the performances are top-notch world class, funny, playful and alive. Any inspiring drummer hearing Dennis Charles here will either give up or know that there are new heights he had never realized existed.

Monk told Lacy, "Record everything," and we have this treasure!

P.S. Look for the later 90's HatHut re-release, it's probably a great deal cheaper than this 'original' re-release.

Stumbled upon this at the library about 7 or 8 years ago after realizing I was completely jazz-ignorant. What a great introduction! Loopy and sympathetic performances capture the Monk-ish attitude to a T. Still pretty ignorant, but this remains one of my all-time favorite works of music in any genre.

Recorded around March 1963 in an NYC coffeehouse, this is a swinging, high-energy Monk set in amazingly good sound. Rudd's good-humored, gutbucket solos and Lacy's astringent statements on soprano first suggested a hip, musical Abbott & Costello act to me, but both hornmen are on fire throughout the set. Monk's music holds no terrors for them; listen to how effortlessly they swing even such notoriously difficult tunes as "Skippy" and "Brilliant Corners," and to the sheer momentum they generate on the Latinesque "Bye-Ya," in which the bass player hadn't yet shown up!

This is glorious music, miraculously rescued from oblivion.
