Description

Thelonious Monk Quartet 'Monk's Dream' plus 1 bonus track, pressed on 180g purple vinyl.

"This important album, Monk's first after a long absence from the recording studio, is a stunning reaffirmation of his power as a performer and composer. It is a brilliant and absorbing program of five Monk originals and three standards (and they might just as well be originals, so startling is their transformation at his hands). This is a beautiful album in every respect." - Pete Welding, DownBeat Magazine

"Monk's Dream is the Columbia Records debut release featuring the Thelonious Monk Quartet: Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums). Jazz scholars and enthusiasts alike also heralded this combo as the best Monk had been involved with for several years. Although he would perform and record supported by various other musicians, the tight -almost telepathic - dimensions that these four shared has rarely been equalled in any genre." - Lindsay Planer, All Music
