"Brilliant Corners" (Riverside RLP12-226) was Thelonious Monk’s third album for Riverside Records and the first on the label to include his own music. The complex title track, with its multiple time signature changes, required over two dozen takes in the studio, and is considered one of Monk’s most difficult compositions. The album features such stars as Sonny Rollins and Max Roach, as well as some of the pianist/composer’s most creative writing ever. Four additional selections also showcasing both Monk and Rollins have been included here as a bonus.
