Like many of the reviewers have stated already, Monk absolutely rips the keys apart on many of these tunes. It is by far one of the best representations of his piano playing than any other box set. Everything here is simply ear candy.
Here are all the musicans that appear on this box set: Coleman Hawkins, Sonny Rollins, Frank Foster (tenor saxophone); Miles Davis, Ray Copeland (trumpet);Julius Watkins (French horn); Milt Jackson (vibraphone); Gary Mapp, Tommy Potter, Edward "Bass" Robinson, Curly Russell (bass); and Art Taylor, Denzil Best, Kenny Clarke, Willie Jones, Max Roach (drums).
Instead of buying these records individually, I would recommend going ahead and putting the money toward this set. I would also recommend this box set to anyone interested in hearing one of the true innovators of jazz.
This set also contains the only other version of one of my favorite Monk compositions "Locomotive," which also appears years later on his Columbia album "Straight, No Chaser."
If you like smoking piano jazz, then buy this today.
The "odd man out" in Monk's catalogue are the Prestige recordings. There are only 3 discs to this often-downplayed period in Monk's career, but the recordings are - like most everything Monk did - excellent. Working with greats like Sonny Rollins & Miles Davis, Monk tackles, for the most part, tunes penned by other writers. Only 15 originals are in this set, but that's part of the Prestige material's charm.
24-bit remastering and neat packaging with excellent liner notes, this is an excellent companion to the Blue Note, Riverside & London material. If you're a big Monk fan, these discs belong in your collection.
