Format: Audio CD
I am a big fan of jazz in most of its forms. From the early trad improvisations of Biederbeck and Bechet, through the hi-de-ho of Calloway and the scat of Armstrong, to the experimentalism of Davis and Mingus. And Duke Ellington, in my eyes, was the King. But there are two artists who I keep coming back to, who's records I listen to again and again, who manage to synthesise the boundary pushing of be-bop with the tradition of swing to produce complex, thought provoking yet accessible and foot tapping records. These two geniuses are drummer Art Blakey and pianist Thelonious Monk.

The pair always worked well together, with Monk describing Blakey as his favourite drummer to work with, and any recording featuring them is a special event. And so it is here. Blakey lays down his usual complex beats and rhythms, providing a perfect jumping off point for Monk's keyboard interjections. Monk, as usual, plays with restraint, with the notes he doesn't play almost as important as those he does. There is a real synergy between the two, and a real feel of magic in the air. Added to this is the sympathetic accompaniment of the rest of the Jazz Messengers of the day, Johnny Griffin on sax, Bill Hardman on trumpet and Spanky Debrest on bass. They fit right in with proceedings, and the whole thing comes together as a record of extended, swinging cuts of old Monk tunes that never fail to grab the attention or imagination.

This excellent release from Atlantic has a nice sound, clear and giving each player a distinct voice. There is a decent booklet and essay, and some alternate takes that add to the album. A really worthwhile addition to any jazz lover's collection.

Format: Audio CD
The 1957 meeting of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers & Thelonious Monk is one of the classics of modern jazz. Blakey played on some of Monk's earlier BLUE NOTE sessions and was the perfect drummer for the pianist. Tenorist Johnny Griffin also had a close understanding of Monk's music and plays brilliantly here. The quintet is completed by the underrated trumpeter Bill Hardman and the dependable bassist Spanky DeBrest. There are five Monk tunes with an original by Griffin plus three alternative takes.
The music still sounds fresh and exciting over 50 years later and is absolutely essential for any modern jazz collection.

This classic album dates back to 1957. By now Art Blakey had established his "Jazz Messengers", although the line up remained variable throughout the decade or so of its existence. Here we have four Messengers: Blakey, Johnny Griffin (tenor; one of the two or three saxophonists who could cope with Monk, his temperment and "impossible" tunes), Bill Hardman (tpt) and Spanky Debrest (b) who join forces with Monk to make this outstanding quintet. Such is the nature of Monk's compositions that no two recordings stand any chance of being alike, even if recorded by exactly the same personnel. It is this complexity that adds to the charm of Monk's music. Certainly Blakey had recorded many times previously with Monk, and Griffin is do do likewise in the future. So we see that an empathy has already been established here. Such cohesiveness is needed to interpret this music. Consequently this really is an alltime masterpiece and belongs in the collection of any Monk or Blakey fan.

Monk and friends 2 July 2006
By Nikica Gilic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great example of the genious of Thelonious Monk, whose unique tallents are joined with the hard driving Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers.
They play Monk's music so the fans of Art Blakey should be aware that this is basically a Monk's CD (not a typical Blakey's CD), but they should buy it as well. The music is exciting and inovative, with tenorist Johnny Griffin proving to be a great asset on all kinds of recordings.
