These electrifying sessions recorded on June 25/26, 1957 feature pianist/composer Thelonious Monk's septet with the contasting tenor saxophones of John Coltrane & Coleman Hawkins, altoist Gigi Gryce, trumpeter Ray Copeland and Wilbur Ware & Art Blakey bass & drums respectively.
The album begins with a short and striking version of the hymn 'Abide With Me' featuring trumpet and saxophones only, followed by exhilarating septet versions of Monk's 'Well You Needn't', 'Ruby My Dear', 'Off Minor'(takes 4&5), 'Epistrophy' & 'Crepuscule With Nellie'(takes 4,5&6). Ending the album is Gigi Gryce's 13-minute 'Blues For Tomorrow' with Monk absent.
This OJC remastered 2011 edition of 'Monk's Music' with notes by author Ashley Kahn and producer Orrin Keepnews is an absolutely essential album for any Monk, Trane or Hawkins enthusiast.
