Recorded live in 1958 at the Five Spot Café in New York, Misterioso is one of two albums to emerge from the Five Spot dates - the other being Thelonious in Action - that introduced the world to the quartet format that defined the remainder of Monk's career.
Monk's lineup throughout this recording includes tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin, bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik and drummer Roy Haynes. Art Blakey sits in on drums in one of the reissue's three bonus tracks, a medley of "Bye-Ya" and "Epistrophy."
