Just after John Coltrane left him and before the arrival of Charlie Rouse, Thelonious Monk formed a quartet with Johnny Griffin, which played at the Five Spot in New York during 1958. Half of this music was issued on two albums: In Action (Riverside RLP-1190) and Misterioso (Riverside RLP-1133). This edition contains all known music from that gig plus a rare bonus track also featuring Griffin.
