Description

'Monk's Music' the classic 1957 album by the Thelonious Monk Septet + 2 bonus tracks, available on limited edition 180g blue virgin vinyl. Contains new specially prepared liner notes by Penguin Guide To Jazz writer Brian Morton, and by Paris' prestigious Jazz Magazine.

"But the album title really goes further than that. This is Thelonious Monk's music in the most complete sense. These sessions have been particularly valued for the presence of Coleman Hawkins and John Coltrane, two saxophone giants from different generations. Some accounts of the recordings devote more space to the horns than to the leader. So, listen carefully to how humbly Coltrane plays on "Ruby My Dear". He was still an emerging artist, to be sure, but his command of the instrument was complete, and he didn't usually play with this reserve. Hawkins, by contrast, is determined to make his presence felt. He even comes in at the wrong place a couple of times." Brian Morton
