As Scott Yanow puts it in his five-star review for AllMusic, “This is one of Monk’s greatest recordings and represents a high point in his career… essential for all jazz collections.” The album, Monk’s fifth for Columbia records, was recorded live in New York City on December 30, 1963. The album is receiving its first ever double LP release with this 180gram reissue, which was mastered from original tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas for a true audiophile experience.
