Picture of ESSENTIAL THELONIOUS MONK (RMST) 'Round Midnight - Thelonious Monk Source

Recorded between 1962-1968, this collection includes recordings from all of Thelonious Monk’s settings with Columbia: solo (a stunning rendition of “‘Round Midnight”), followed by a live quartet outing of “Bemsha Swing”, and “Blue Monk” from the 1963 Newport Jazz Festival. “In all, the collection is solid in that it features top-notch, unique readings of many of his classic tunes. With its brilliant selection and stellar sound, this is a great place to start a Monk collection”. - AllMusic Guide
