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.
