Product Notes

Functioning as part of the musical component to Ken Burns's television documentary Jazz, this compilation is a 14-track introduction to Thelonious Monk's music. As with the other 21 single-CD compilations, the music here is, as the packaging says, definitive. Important tracks from Monk's work on Blue Note, Prestige, Riverside, Columbia, and even Black Lion are collected onto this nicely packaged, reasonably priced, remastered album. Here, newcomers and experts can dig into the work of this great American composer through such important jazz classics as "'Round Midnight" (which gets a solo reading here), "Straight, No Chaser," "Brilliant Corners," and "Ruby, My Dear." Of course, along with his being a prodigious composer, Monk's singular playing style is arguably one of the most recognized in jazz, regardless of instruments, and this disc showcases Monk's angular phrasing and ability to smudge his patented between-the-key notes. This seemingly awkward style may seem odd at first, but one stroll through this album is enough to prove the genius of Monk, who is one of jazz's greatest. --Tad Hendrickson
