Monk's Dream
Format: MP3 Download|Change

on 26 January 2014
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.

Terrific performances from all the quartet, with excellent solo piano from Monk, especially on Body & Soul.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 20 September 2017
This expanded debut album for COLUMBIA by the great pianist/composer Thelonious Monk(1917-82) was compiled from sessions recorded in New York City on October 31 and November 1, 2, & 6, 1962.
Monk's empathetic quartet featured Charlie Rouse(tenor sax); John Ore(bass) & Frankie Dunlop(drums) in exuberant form on twelve tracks(including four alternative takes not on the original LP).
'Monk's Dream' is one of Thelonious Monk's finest COLUMBIA albums containing 73 minutes of inventive and exhilarating modern jazz that still sounds fresh over 50 years later.

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.
