Monk, Thelonious - Underground Underground
Jazz Used - LP CS 9632 Columbia
Rare 1968 360 Stereo Original, 1D/1C Stampers. Superficial Surface Mark At The End Of Side Two Is Inaudible. Cover Is Perfect. This Release Has Long Been Considered Thelonious Monk's Acknowledgement To The Flourishing Youth-Oriented Subculture From Whence The Collection Takes Its Name. Certainly The Grammy-Winning Cover Art -- Which Depicts Monk As A World War II French Revolutionary Toting An Automatic Weapon -- Gave The Establishment More Than The Brilliant Swinging Sounds In The Grooves To Consider. Underground Became Monk's Penultimate Studio Album, As Well As The Final Release To Feature The '60s Quartet: Charlie Rouse (Tenor Sax), Ben Riley (Drums), And Larry Gales (Bass) Behind Monk (Piano). One Of The Motifs Running Throughout Monk's Recording Career Is The Revisitation Of Titles From His Voluminous Back Catalog. The Tradition Continues With The Autobiographical Leadoff Track, "Thelonious." The Instantly Recognizable Stride Piano Lines Are Delivered With The Same Urgency And Precision That They Possessed Over Two Decades Earlier When He First Recorded The Track For Blue Note. The Presence Of Charlie Rouse Throughout The Album Is Certainly Worth Noting. "Ugly Beauty" Best Captures The Sacred Space And Musical Rapport That He And Monk Shared. Each Musician Functions As An Extension Of The Other, Creating Solos That Weave Synchronically As If Performed By The Same Pair Of Hands. Newer Material, Such As The Playful "Green Chimneys" -- Named After The School Monk's Daughter Attended -- As Well As The Unbalanced Hypnotism Of "Raise Four," Asserts The Timelessness And Relevance Of Monk's Brand Of Bop. The Disc Ends As It Begins With A New Twist On An Old Favorite. Jon Hendricks -- Who Provides Lyrics And Vocals On "In Walked Bud" -- Recalls The Hustle And Bustle Of The Real And Spontaneous Underground Harlem Jam Sessions Of The Late '40s. It Is Likewise An Apt Bookend To This Chapter In The Professional Life Of Thelonious Monk. AMG.... more details

Monk, Thelonious - Monk's Dream Monk's Dream
Jazz Used - LP CL 1965 Columbia
Stunning White Label Promo Mono. Monk’s 1962 5 Star Debut On Columbia Features Charlie Rouse, Tenor Sax; John Ore And Frankie Dunlop (Drums). Jazz Scholars And Enthusiasts Alike Heralded This Combo As The Best Monk Had Been Involved With For Several Years. The Tight, Almost Telepathic Dimensions That These Four Shared Has Rarely Been Equaled In Any Genre. Discerning Monk Fans Would Have Undoubtedly Recognized Many Of These Titles From Several Live Recordings Issued At The End Of His Tenure On Riverside. However, Precious Few Musicians Understood The Layer Upon Layer Of Complexities And Challenges That Monk's Music Created. On Tracks Such As "Five Spot Blues" And "Bolivar Blues," Rouse And Dunlop Demonstrate Their Uncanny Abilities By Squeezing In Well-Placed Instrumental Fills, While Never Getting Hit By The Unpredictable Rhythmic Frisbees Being Tossed About By Monk. Augmenting The Six Quartet Recordings Are Two Solo Tracks: "Just A Gigolo" And "Body And Soul." Most Notable About Monk's Solo Work Is How Much He Retained The Same Extreme Level Of Intuition Throughout The Nearly Two Decades That Separate These Recordings From His Initial Renderings On Prestige In The Late '40s. Top Recommendation. 1B/1A Stampers, Unplayed Condition.... more details

Monk, Thelonious - Criss-Cross Criss-Cross
Jazz Used - LP CS 8838 Columbia
1963 360 Stereo Label Original. LP Is Sealed In The Inner Poly Bag. Jacket Is Near Mint. Thelonious Monk, Piano; Charlie Rouse, Tenor Saxophone; Frankie Dunlap, Drums; John Ore, Bass. Tunes Are: "Hackensack," "Tea For Two," "Criss-Cross," "Eronel," "Rhythm-A-Ning," Don't Blame Me," "Think Of One" And "Crepuscule With Nellie." “Criss-Cross -- Thelonious Monk's Second Album For Columbia Records -- Features Some Of The Finest Work That Monk Ever Did In The Studio With His '60s Trio And Quartet. Whether Revisiting Pop Standards Or Reinventing Monk's Own Classic Compositions, Monk And Charlie Rouse (Tenor Sax), John Ore (Bass), And Frankie Dunlop (Drums) Exchange Powerful Musical Ideas, As Well As Provide Potent Solos Throughout The Disc. Fittingly, "Hackensack" -- A Frenetic Original Composition -- Opens The Disc By Demonstrating The Bandleader's Strength In A Quartet Environment. The Solid Rhythmic Support Of The Trio Unfetters Monk Into Unleashing Endless Cascades Of Percussive Inflections And Intoxicating Chord Progressions. The Title Cut Also Reflects The Ability Of The Four Musicians To Maintain Melodic Intricacies That Are At Times So Exigent It Seems Cruel That Monk Would Have Expected A Musician Of Any Caliber To Pull Them Off. "Tea For Two" Showcases Monk's Appreciation For The Great Stride Or "Walking" Piano Style Of James P. Johnson And Willie "The Lion" Smith. The Arrangement Here Is Lighter, And Features A Trio (Minus Rouse) To Accent Rather Than Banter With Monk's Splashes Of Magnificence Throughout. Likewise, Monk's Solo On "Don't Blame Me" Is Excellent. The Extended Runs Up And Down The Keyboard Can't Help But Reiterate The Tremendous Debt Of Gratitude Owed To The Original Stride Pianists Of The Early 20th Century. This Is Prime Monk For Any Degree Of Listener.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details

Monk, Thelonious - Monk's Dream Monk's Dream
Jazz New - LP CS 9765 Columbia
Sealed 1962 360 Stereo Original. Crisp Corners. “Jazz Scholars And Enthusiasts Alike Also Heralded This Combo As The Best Monk Had Been Involved With For Several Years. Although He Would Perform And Record Supported By Various Other Musicians, The Tight -- Almost Telepathic -- Dimensions That These Four Shared Has Rarely Been Equalled In Any Genre. By The Early '60s, Bop Had Become Considered Passé By Artists As Well As Fans Looking For The Next Musical Trend. This Is Coupled With The Fact That Discerning Monk Fans Would Have Undoubtedly Recognized Many Of These Titles From Several Live Recordings Issued At The End Of His Tenure On Riverside. Not To Belabor The Point, However, But Precious Few Musicians Understood The Layer Upon Layer Of Complexities And Challenges That Monk's Music Created. On Tracks Such As "Five Spot Blues" And "Bolivar Blues," Rouse And Dunlop Demonstrate Their Uncanny Abilities By Squeezing In Well-Placed Instrumental Fills, While Never Getting Hit By The Unpredictable Rhythmic Frisbees Being Tossed About By Monk. Augmenting The Six Quartet Recordings Are Two Solo Sides: "Just A Gigolo" And "Body And Soul." Most Notable About Monk's Solo Work Is How Much He Retained The Same Extreme Level Of Intuition Throughout The Nearly Two Decades That Separate These Recordings From His Initial Renderings On Prestige In The Late '40s. Monk's Dream Is Recommended, With Something For Every Degree Of Monk Enthusiast.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details

Monk, Thelonious - Underground Underground
Jazz New - LP CS 9632 Columbia
Factory Sealed 1968 360 Stereo Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. This Release Has Long Been Considered Thelonious Monk's Acknowledgement To The Flourishing Youth-Oriented Subculture From Whence The Collection Takes Its Name. Certainly The Grammy-Winning Cover Art -- Which Depicts Monk As A World War II French Revolutionary Toting An Automatic Weapon -- Gave The Establishment More Than The Brilliant Swinging Sounds In The Grooves To Consider. Underground Became Monk's Penultimate Studio Album, As Well As The Final Release To Feature The '60s Quartet: Charlie Rouse (Tenor Sax), Ben Riley (Drums), And Larry Gales (Bass) Behind Monk (Piano). One Of The Motifs Running Throughout Monk's Recording Career Is The Revisitation Of Titles From His Voluminous Back Catalog. The Tradition Continues With The Autobiographical Leadoff Track, "Thelonious." The Instantly Recognizable Stride Piano Lines Are Delivered With The Same Urgency And Precision That They Possessed Over Two Decades Earlier When He First Recorded The Track For Blue Note. The Presence Of Charlie Rouse Throughout The Album Is Certainly Worth Noting. "Ugly Beauty" Best Captures The Sacred Space And Musical Rapport That He And Monk Shared. Each Musician Functions As An Extension Of The Other, Creating Solos That Weave Synchronically As If Performed By The Same Pair Of Hands. Newer Material, Such As The Playful "Green Chimneys" -- Named After The School Monk's Daughter Attended -- As Well As The Unbalanced Hypnotism Of "Raise Four," Asserts The Timelessness And Relevance Of Monk's Brand Of Bop. The Disc Ends As It Begins With A New Twist On An Old Favorite. Jon Hendricks -- Who Provides Lyrics And Vocals On "In Walked Bud" -- Recalls The Hustle And Bustle Of The Real And Spontaneous Underground Harlem Jam Sessions Of The Late '40s. It Is Likewise An Apt Bookend To This Chapter In The Professional Life Of Thelonious Monk. AMG.... more details

Monk, Thelonious - It's Monk's Time It's Monk's Time
Jazz Audiophile - LP CS 8984 Speakers Corner
Factory Sealed 180gm HQ Stereo Reissue. Although Often Unrightfully Maligned By Self-Proclaimed "Purists," Thelonious Monk Did Some Brilliant Work During His Early- To Mid-'60s Stint For Columbia Records. It's Monk's Time (1964) Contains Some Of The Best -- If Not Arguably The Best -- Studio Sides That The Pianist Cut During His Final Years As A Recording Musician. The Album's Title Turned Out To Be Somewhat Prophetic, As Time Magazine Featured Monk As The Cover Subject For Its February 28, 1964, Edition. Interestingly, He Was To Have Been Profiled By The Periodical The Previous November; However, The Assassination Of Then-President John F. Kennedy Took Obvious Precedence. It Had Been Almost A Full Year Since His Previous Studio Release, Criss-Cross (1963), And There Had Been A Significant Alteration In The Rhythm Section, Which Now Incorporated The Respective Talents Of Both Butch Warren (Bass) And Ben Riley (Drums) As Well As Longtime Cohort Charlie Rouse (Tenor Sax). From Four Sessions In Early 1964, It's Monk's Time Gathers Four Quartet And Two Solo Sides, Presenting The Pinnacle Of What These Musicians Offered Stylistically As Well As From The Standpoint Of Presentation. There Is Sense Of Mischievous Playfulness In Monk's Nimble Keyboard Work, Especially Notable On The Beautifully Off-Kilter Unaccompanied Opening To "Lulu's Back In Town," And The Same Practically Impish Quality Also Drives The Solo Performance On "Nice Work If You Can Get It." Both Pop Standards Are Prime Examples Of The Bop Pioneer's Inimitable Approach To Arranging, And Also Provide An Uncanny Insight To His Influences. The Concluding Cut, "Shuffle Boil," Is One Of The Lost Gems Of The Artist's Later Work. It Sports An Effortless Swing Over A Sophisticated And Challenging Melodic Structure. Bassist Warren Steps Up To The Plate, Providing A Supple And Pulsating Bed For Both Monk And Rouse As They Trade Solos.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details

Sealed 1971 Original. Small Cut Corner. Alan Bates Took Thelonious Monk Into The Studio For His First Trio Recording In 15 Years With His Old Sidekick Art Blakey. It Has Been Said Often Enough That Blakey Is The Ideal Drummer For Monk, And One Has Only To Hear Them Together Again After All This Time To Realize The Truth Of The Statement. If Blakey At Times Seems To Push The Pianist Almost Too Hard, That Is In Fact The Nature Of Their Musical Relationship. And, Throughout The Session, Blakey Appeared To Be Vying With The Producer In Alternately Cajoling And Coercing Monk Into Fulfilling Various Requests From The Small Invited Audience.... more details

Monk, Thelonious - Solo Monk Solo Monk
Jazz Used - LP CS 9149 Columbia
1965 360 Stereo Label Original. NM/NM (Plays Without Surface Noise Throughout). “The Mystery And Haunting Angular Beauty Of Thelonious Monk's Unadorned Keyboard Sides Are The Focus Of Solo Monk. As If Holding The History Of Jazz In His Hands, Monk's Solo Recordings And Performances From Every Phase Of His Career Remain Pure. The Components Of What Made Monk Such An Uncompromising Composer, Arranger, And Especially Bandmember Are Evident In Every Note He Plays. The Disc Includes Both Monk Originals As Well As Several Covers Of Pop Music Standards. A Majority Of These Sides Were Cut During A West Coast Swing In Late October And Early November 1964. This Highly Productive Jaunt Would Likewise Yield Two Live Releases: Live At The It Club And Live At The Jazz Workshop; Both Would Feature Monk's Quartet. On An Emotional Level, However, These Sides Arguably Surpass Many Of The Band Recordings. "Sweet And Lovely" Contains Several Passages That Are Played With The Command And Intensity Usually Demanded Of A Classical Work. The Intense Yet Sophisticated Chord Progressions That Punctuate "Ruby, My Dear" Transform What Once Were Simple Pop Melodies Into Unaccompanied Rhapsodies. Monk Transforms The Solitude Of "Everything Happens To Me" Into A Minor Bop Masterpiece Replete With His Signature Disjointed Phrasings And Variable Pacing….” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details
