This was pianist Thelonious Monk's first album for the Columbia label; it was made between October 31st and November 6th in '62. 'Body And Soul' and 'Just A Gigolo' are unaccompanied piano solos by Monk. The remainder of the tracks feature him in a quartet with Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass) and Frankie Dunlop (drums). Rouse sounds a bit relentless at times, but never quite monotonous. Dunlop's bouncy drumming is a joy to listen to, and Monk himself is on good quirky form. These are studio recordings, the sound quality is excellent and the playing time is 73 minutes. A very attractive item - bewitching even.

A seminal album that I now can't imagine life without. Monk's Dream is probably the best known of Monk's massive body of work & for good reason! He's created a playful, funny, beautiful & moving soundscape here which offers something new every time. It's obviously an instrumental album so if you are looking for vocals, this ain't it.

It was hard to find at a decent price but ever I was able to buy it through Amazon at the cheapest price available. Because it was through a marketplace seller from the US, it did take some time but they made that clear at the front end. Arrived nicely packaged & in a properly padded package. Would definitely recommend.
