Thelonious Monk was a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, using dissonance as an asset rather than a mistake. His compositions and playing style are uniquely his and his alone. As Ryan points out, it’s straight-up craziness that these are the first recordings of Monk, given that they’re essentially all his greatest hits. From Round About Midnight to Ruby, My Dear, it’s all here and it’s all fantastic. And while you’ll definitely hear these tunes on later records, you won’t hear them like this. RK: Monk’s songwriting was evolving around the time of this album. Tunes like Boo Boo’s Birthday and Green Chimneys have structures and melodies that sound very modern. It’s almost like they could be cuts off albums from contemporary jazz artists.
