6--monk brilliant-cornersThe most important musicians are those who successfully create their own original world of music with its own rules, logic and surprises. Thelonious Monk is one of those people. This was Monk's third album for Riverside and what sets it apart from his previous work is the originality of the material. There's an inescapable freshness and vitality in every track on the album, helped partly by the support Monk receives from Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Oscar Pettiford and Ernie Henry.
