Description
In 1964, the date of this release, Time wrote of Thelonious Monk: "It is his high philosophy to be different, and having steadily ignored all advice and all the fads and vogues of jazz that made lesser musicians grow rich around him, he now reaps the rewards of his conviction gladly but without surprise." With masterful and rhapsodic versions of both Monk originals and standards, the album includes "Dinah," "I'm Confessin' (That I Love You)," "I Surrender, Dear," "I Should Care," "Sweet and Lovely," "North of the Sunset," "Monk's Point," "Ask Me Now," "Everything Happens to Me," and "Ruby, My Dear."

"His playing had a special quality and richness that distinguished it from that of any other keyboard master. Monk often played 'wrong' notes in his accompaniment, broke patterns unexpectedly, changed his emphasis in mid-solo, and violated many other conventional rules regarding melody, harmony and rhythmic development. Still, his solos always had a flow and form that worked, and his songs were remarkably constructed."Tennessee Tribune
