MONK, THELONIOUS WITH SONNY ROLLINS & FRANK FOSTER - MONK (LP)


"It's truly astonishing how much Thelonious Monk can do with so little. Working with an all-star ensemble including Sonny Rollins and Art Blakey, Monk will settle into a small section of the melody laid out in the opening of the song, playing endlessly with rhythmic variations and possibilities for dissonance. These explorations never become self-indulgent, but rather create new spaces within the songs that his band can explore." (label info) originally released in 1956, cover art by Andy Warhol
