Thelonious Monk: The Best of Thelonious Monk



Summing up Thelonious Monk in a single CD collection is a daunting task, but this generous 10-track compilation affords a great introduction to this singular pianist and composer, covering as it does his finest and most productive years. Band members heard here include Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Art Blakey. “Straight No Chaser,” Well, You Needn’t”, “Off Minor,” Brilliant Corners”, and the transcendent “Round Midnight” highlight this disc. Total Time: 1 hour 13 minutes
