Description:Original Jazz Classics vinyl reissue of a classic Jazzland album (J-946)!

This album contains the only three studio-recorded sides that the legendary pianist Thelonious Monk cut John Coltrane when the tenorist was in his quartet (with Wilbur Ware and Shadow Wilson) for a brief period in 1957 ("Ruby, My Dear," "Trinkle, Tinkle" and "Nutty"). It is well known that Coltrane learned a lot from Monk and grew tremendously as a musician, and the group had a special spark and chemistry that captivated their audience at the Five Spot in New York. This album is all the more valuable because, as far as we know, the special quartet did not leave any other studio recordings.

Since the three tunes were not enough to fill an entire album, the producer decided to add alternate takes from Monk's previously released albums. "Off Minor" and "Epistrophy" are taken from the sessions that produced Monk's Music, and features, in addition to Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, Gigi Gryce, Ray Copeland, Ware and Art Blakey. "Functional" is Monk's solo piano piece and an alternate take from the Thelonious Himself session. "Off Minor" and "Epistrophy" are stereo and others are mono.

Not only this album is essential for fans of Monk and Coltrane, it is highly recommended to all jazz enthusiasts!

Produced by Orrin Keepnews. Recorded Originally released on the Jazzland label (Riverside) as J-946. Recorded in 1957.
