5.0 out of 5 stars Down by the Riverside 14 Jun 2011
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is jazz and there is Monk. Not that Thelonious Sphere Monk would have thanked me for the distinction. Monk was steeped in the jazz tradition, and the more I listen to him (always a pleasure, never a chore) the more I hear echoes of the earliest New Orleans jazz, along with Ellington and other peerless pioneers.
This sensitively remastered reissue from the useful Not Now label gives the greedy Monk disciple three perhaps lesser known Monk albums in a handy `soft` box, with packaging & sleevenotes kept to an economical minimum - no bad thing - the only quibble I have being that this could easily have been squashed onto two CDs rather than three, though at the price - who cares!
Alone In San Francisco is Monk superbly alone, and is one of the treasures of the surprisingly prolific Monk catalogue. (The recent exhaustive, essential biography by Robin DG Kelley makes it clear, among much else, that Monk did not always find it easy to get work, whether in the studio or the clubs, for a variety of reasons, so we must be thankful there is so much Monk available.) He plays six originals and four standards beautifully. This is a fine complement to the 2-CD Monk Alone, which collects all his later solo recordings for Columbia, and which is non pareil.
The stunning 5 By Monk By 5 (the sleeve gets the title a bit wrong) is quite an ear opener, featuring Monk`s loyal sax sideman Charlie Rouse at his best alongside the unlikely presence of cornet player Thad Jones (1923-86). It works! It works because it almost doesn`t, Jones`s approach being a trifle pedantic, a touch heavy-handed at times, but Sam Jones (1924-81) on bass and Art Taylor (1929-94) on the drums keep the whole thing pounding along, Monk interjecting when he feels the urge.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 classic Riverside jazz albums from Monk... 11 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
Thelonious Monk, The Riverside Anthology, NOT3CD059
This new Thelonious Monk set has 3 classic albums across 3CDs all presented with neat packaging, photographs, slim line style and songwriter and recording session information too. All Riverside, earliest on CD3 is the artistic success Mulligan Meets Monk 1957 then the aptly titled 5 By Monk 5 lastly, Alone in San Francisco both of these dating from 1959.
"Mulligan Meets Monk" has a mellow and innovative quartet setting and comprises music by Monk, Mulligan and others in a spirited meeting of minds that embraces their own music plus standards such as "Sweet and Lonely". It was a deliberate pairing by the Riverside label and made Monk more high profile. "5 By Monk 5" has self penned compositions apart from a collaboration with Hawkins on track 3. A quintet setting that includes the cornet adds to the overall mood of the album. The higher register of the tenor sax and the inclusion of the cornet in the line up adds urgency to these Monk compositions all of which sound very modern. "Alone in San Francisco", exactly that. The selections are a mix of self penned and standard era material given a modern interpretation by Monk. This album clearly demonstrates his skill at filling the studio with as much music as possible without the backing of other musicians. A good example of this is on track 4 and an extended working of "Everything Happens to Me" not to forget Irving Berlins evergreen at track 8 "Remember". Liner notes by Peter Gamble. Total running time for the set approx 127 minutes. Sound quality excellent throughout. Excellent value. Other Thelonoius Monk CDs on Not Now Music are: Thelonious Monk, Brilliant Corners,2CD,NOT2CD350
