"Monk’s Music" (Riverside RLP 1102) is an important album because it is one of the very few testimonies of Thelonious Monk’s band at the time John Coltrane was a regular member. It also showcases a second tenor sax, that of the legendary Coleman Hawkins, who in the 1940s featured Monk as the pianist of his band, and with whom Monk made his fi rst studio recordings. A long blues that completed the session but wasn’t included in the original LP, plus a quartet date featuring Monk and Coltrane, have been added as a bonus.
