Thelonious Monk - Monk Alone: The Complete Columbia Solo Studio Recordings 1962-1968 / 2CD set
2020 European CD reissue.
Monk is among the most moving piano players ever to stroke the keys. His masterful use of silence and surprise forces you to become entwined in the melody, to enter the song. Step into the world of master artist Thelonious Monk, and embrace the melody and mystique that was his to command. One would expect marvelous renditions of "'Round Midnight" and "Ruby My Dear", and Monk delivers. Equally precious are the performances of lesser-known original gems such as Introspection and "Ask Me Now", and the bravura renditions of standard-bearers such as "I'm Confessin' That I Love You", "Dinah", and the immortal ballad "Body and Soul". As Picasso was to painting, Monk was to jazz. Truly one-of-a-kind.
