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.

Renowned and revered for his improvisational abilities,his contributions to the lexicon of jazz standards, andhis many innovations in composition, it's no wonder thatThelonius Monk's catalog is one of the most recorded ofall time. (Topped only by Duke Ellington.) An eccentricand quirky pianist, Monk's recordings were marked bystrategic dissonance, abrupt key changes, and theusage of silence as an instrument, a style which wasnot fully understood in its time, (One jazz critic referredto Monk as "the elephant at the keyboard") but wouldprove highly influential to the likes of Wynton Marsalis,Mulatu Astatke, Chick Corea, and even hiscontemporaries like Miles Davis and Charles Mingus.When the mid-60s rolled around, many consideredThelonius Monk's best days to be behind him, butin fact some of his most accomplished and deftarrangements can be found on his 1964 release It'sMonk's Time. The album is a much more relaxed andcasual outing for the post-bop innovator, often knownfor noise experimentation. (To the degree that manydie-hard Monk fans would disown It's Monk's Time.)Despite its relaxed sound, Monk and his power triobacking band of Charlie Rouse on sax, Butch Warrenon bass, and Ben Riley on drums bring groundedmuscle to Monk's exploratory and ambient piano.A worthy, 6-song addition to any jazzaficionado's collection, and some of Monk'smost robust compositions.

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.

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.
