Johnny Griffin came to Monk with a reputation as a speed demon - double-timing the tempo was his default mechanism, elaborating melodies with a mixture et mellow swing and complex bop phrasing. Their contrasting nature - Griffin's fluid extravagance an I Monk's percussive dissections - intensified by Roy Haynes' forceful divisions of the beat., generate a tension unlike any of Monk's subsequent: groups.
