Renowned and revered for his improvisational abilities, his contributions to the lexicon of jazz standards, and his many innovations in composition, it's no wonder that Thelonius Monk's catalog is one of the most recorded of all time. (Topped only by Duke Ellington.) An eccentric and quirky pianist, Monk's recordings were marked by strategic dissonance, abrupt key changes, and the usage of silence as an instrument, a style which was not fully understood in its time, (One jazz critic referred to Monk as "the elephant at the keyboard") but would prove highly influential to the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Mulatu Astatke, Chick Corea, and even his contemporaries like Miles Davis and Charles Mingus. In 1964, Monk released his seventh album with Columbia Records, simply titled Monk, featuring a lineup of famed jazz session greats, including Larry Gales on bass, Ben Riley on drums, and Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone. Monk only featured seven tracks, only two of which were original compositions, but Monk's style can be heard all across the 46-minute collection. With cool jazz and hard bop spins on showtune obscurities like "April In Paris" and "Just You, Just Me", jazz standards like "(Just One Way To Say) I Love You" as well as Monk's own works like "Pannonica" and "Teo", a tribute to Columbia's legendary jazz producer, Teo Macero.

Thelonious Monk could walk from his flat to New York’s famous Philharmonic Hall on the corner of 64th Street and Broadway when he made his very first appearance there with his Big Band in December 1963. And the other musicians could get there on the underground: Phil Woods, Steve Lacy, Thad Jones – all of them were members of Monk’s closest circle of collaborators. It is no wonder then that the well-known themes were highly agreeable and harmonious. "I Mean You", "Four In One" and "Epistrophy" resounded through the auditorium, the audience was thrilled, Thelonious laughed and danced and a short while later fans could listen to parts of the concert on a recording released by Columbia Records. In a break for a smoke, Monk sat himself down at the piano and played "Darkness On The Delta" – nocturnal atmosphere pure.
Does it bear the patina of times long past? Absolutely not! Thelonious Monk is as red-hot as he ever was.

Genre:Organic Grooves
The seven-song Unique Thelonious Monk (1956) platter was the pianist's second during his remarkable five-year tenure on Riverside. His debut for the label was the aptly titled Plays Duke Ellington (1955) and once again, on this disc, Monk's song selection did not feature any original compositions. Rather, the well-chosen standards included exemplify and help further establish the pianist and bandleader within the context of familiar melodies at the head of a trio -- consisting of Oscar Pettiford (bass) and Art Blakey (drums). Regarding the personnel, while Pettiford had also accompanied Monk on the Ellington sides, Blakey replaces Kenny Clarke. The pairing of Monk and Blakey cannot be overstated. Immediately, evidence of their uncanny instrumental interaction is the rhythmic focal point of "Liza, All the Clouds'll Roll Away" as the two play musical cat-and-mouse. They cajole and wheedle atop Pettiford's undulating undercurrent as it sonically corals their skilled syncopation and otherwise inspired mile-a-minute interjections. This is starkly contrast to the haunting, lyrical piano solo on "Memories of You." Monk infuses the piece with such profound ingenuity and integrity that his re-evaluation and innovative arrangement are singularly and undeniably his own.

Some miracles get broken up into small
bits, leaving fate, circumstance and the
right people at the right time to reconstruct
them. That John Coltrane played with
Thelonious Monk in 1957 remains one
of those astounding miracles. The album
contains three unforgettable tracks
featuring Monk and Coltrane grooving
away beautifully. “Ruby, My Dear” contains
a mellow, lush feel suitable for sitting back,
“Trinkle, Tinkle,” a definitely interesting
Monk-ish title, showcases Coltrane’s
insane chops and “Nutty,” one of Monk’s
most beguilingly catchy tunes. Thelonious
Monk and John Coltrane melded together
inexplicably and created some of the most
amazing tracks ever laid down in the name
of jazz. The album contains 2 Bonus tracks.

Renowned and revered for his improvisational abilities,
his contributions to the lexicon of jazz standards, and
his many innovations in composition, it's no wonder that
Thelonius Monk's catalog is one of the most recorded of
all time. (Topped only by Duke Ellington.) An eccentric
and quirky pianist, Monk's recordings were marked by
strategic dissonance, abrupt key changes, and the
usage of silence as an instrument, a style which was
not fully understood in its time, (One jazz critic referred
to Monk as "the elephant at the keyboard") but would
prove highly influential to the likes of Wynton Marsalis,
Mulatu Astatke, Chick Corea, and even his
contemporaries like Miles Davis and Charles Mingus.
When the mid-60s rolled around, many considered
Thelonius Monk's best days to be behind him, but
in fact some of his most accomplished and deft
arrangements can be found on his 1964 release It's
Monk's Time. The album is a much more relaxed and
casual outing for the post-bop innovator, often known
for noise experimentation. (To the degree that many
die-hard Monk fans would disown It's Monk's Time.)
Despite its relaxed sound, Monk and his power trio
backing band of Charlie Rouse on sax, Butch Warren
on bass, and Ben Riley on drums bring grounded
muscle to Monk's exploratory and ambient piano.
A worthy, 6-song addition to any jazz
aficionado's collection, and some of Monk's
most robust compositions.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Thelonious Monk was one of the most innovative and idiosyncratic figures in jazz history. A true originator he collaborated with some of the finest jazz musicians of all time including John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Miles Davis. This compilation features many of Monk’s standards including “Blue Monk”, “Round Midnight” and “Straight No Chaser”. Almost from the outset the pianist pursued a singular artistic vision as player and composer and played a key part in the birth of the music which emerged from New York City in the mid-1940s, which, with its new harmonic and rhythmic ideas, ultimately became known as bebop. By the time of his passing in 1982 he’d long established a classic canon, many of which are included here and are a fitting tribute to Monk in 2017, his centennial year.

The Unique Thelonious Monk, recorded in 1956, is the pianist’s second LP of standards. Though the recording was his label’s attempt at reaching a larger audience, this is in no way watered down; Monk takes his unique interpretive approach to tracks from the likes of the Gershwins, and Rodgers & Hart. With the help of a crack rhythm section of Blakey and Pettiford, this is one of Monk’s early career highlights and a truly unique piece of 50s piano trio jazz, back in print on 180 gram LP with download card.

Release:1956 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Volume 1 of the two-volume Genius of Modern Music set comprises the first sessions Thelonious Monk recorded as a leader, on October 15 and 24 and November 21 of 1947. It's impossible to overstate the importance of these sessions. They include some of the earliest recordings of Monk compositions that would become standards, despite their angularity and technical difficulty: the strange, sideways chord progression of "Thelonious"; the bouncy and cheerful but melodically cockeyed "Well, You Needn't"; the post-bop Bud Powell tribute "In Walked Bud"; and, of course, "'Round Midnight," which is now one of the most frequently recorded jazz compositions ever. There are kinks to be worked out: Art Blakey's drumming is fine, but he obviously hasn't quite taken the measure of Monk's compositional genius, and on the November session, alto saxophonist Sahib Shihab employs a fat, warbly tone that sounds out of place. But the excitement of discovery permeates every measure, and Monk himself is in top form, his solos jagged and strange, yet utterly beautiful. This first volume of Genius of Modern Music, along with the second, belongs in every jazz collection.
