This is modern jazz at its exciting and driving best. All the musicians are on top form and this album along with its sister recording, " Misterioso" are essential to any jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best Jazz CDs ever, 7 July 2012

This review is from: Thelonious In Action (Audio CD)
a fantastic compilation from 2 nights at the 5 spot club. an amazing band with great performances from everyone with Johnny Griffin in particular on incredible form. there are other versions of this available but the sound quality and mastering etc. are excellent here. if you only want to buy one Monk record then this has got to be strongly recommended. great tunes too!

5.0 out of 5 stars An atmospheric & exhilarating live recording from Monk's quartet in 1958., 27 Jun 2014

This review is from: Thelonious In Action (Audio CD)
This overlooked live album from the great pianist/composer Thelonious Monk(1917-1982) was recorded at the Five Spot Cafe, New York City on August 7 & July 9, 1958.
With the pianist were tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin(1928-2008), who had a close understanding of Monk's music, and a superb rhythm section of Ahmed Abdul-Malik(bass) & Roy Haynes(drums). It's a pity that this exciting quartet didn't record together more often.
Everyone is on exuberant form on the ten tracks including three bonus performances. Highlights are the rarely-played 'Coming On The Hudson', 'Rhythm-A-Ning' & 'Evidence'.
This atmospheric live recording contains over an hour of inventive and exhilarating music and deserves a place in any modern jazz collection along with its companion album 'Misterioso'.
