Hardcore jazzheads with no doubt be delighted with this first vinyl edition of this compilation first released in 2006 on CD that includes all the recordings Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane did together in 1957 for Riverside. Never mind that the vast majority of this material has been issued several times. There are two cuts that have never appeared before: an alternate of "Crepuscule with Nellie" from the septet sessions for Monk's Music on June 25 and 26 ( with Gigi Gryce, Coleman Hawkins, bassist Wilbur Ware, and drummer Shadow Wilson), and an alternate of "Abide with Me" with just Trane, Hawkins, and Gryce.

Housed in a cardboard sleeve styled like a manila folder with a tie string seal on the cover. Includes printed inner sleeves and a ten-page color booklet with liner notes, original session photos, and a wonderful and insightful essay about recording this music by original producer Orrin Keepnews.
