180 gram exact repro reissue. His seventh album for Columbia Records, originally released in 1965. Featuring Thelonious Monk (piano), Larry Gales (bass), Ben Riley (Drums) and Charlie Rouse (tenor saxophone). "Thelonious Monk is an example of an exceptionally uncorrupted creative talent. He has accepted the challenges that one must accept to forge a music utilizing the jazz process. Because he lacks, perhaps fortunately, exposure to the Western classical music tradition or, for that matter, comprehensive exposure to any music other than jazz and American popular music, his reflections of formal superficialities and their replacement with fundamental structure has resulted in a unique and astoundingly pure music."
