Monks Dream by TheloniousThis album features Monk on piano, Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, John Ore on bass and Frankie Dunlop on drums. It was his first recording for Columbia, and scholars and enthusiasts alike heralded this combo as the best Monk had been involved with for several years. Although he would perform and record supported by various other musicians, the tight - almost telepathic - dimensions that these four shared has rarely been equalled in any genre.
