CD (Item 506738) Blue Note, Late 40s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 5

A great collection of Monk's 10" recordings for Blue Note – seminal not only for the label's commitment to a modernist bop ideal, but also for Monk's integration in the growing collection of top-level jazz players on the New York scene. The work's notable also for the fact that Monk's playing in group settings – not trio ones – and here, his early writing for and interplay with saxes and trumpet would certainly have a strong effect on the development of modern jazz in the 50s. Titles on this first volume include "Round Midnight", "In Walked Bud", "Suburban Eyes", "Humph", "Evonce", "Monk's Mood", "Well You Needn't", and "Off Minor" – and this new version features a total of 21 tracks with great remastering and some rare alternate takes!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
