Monk’s 1946 solo affair ranks among the pioneering pianist’s most introspective, cerebral, and emotional outings. His trademark angularity informs a majority of the pieces, yet so does grand classicism and melodic rapture. Monk’s readings of the originals and standards practically stand the tunes on their collective ears. Solo Monk is simply amazing. And now, mastered from the original master tapes, this 180gram LP brings all the music closer, and into more transparent form, than ever before.
