Monk, Thelonious - Genius Of Modern Music, Volume 1 CD (expanded)

SKU 15-Blue Note 5321382
I am a big fan of Thelonious, but for my money, his absolute best work was at the very beginning of his career, when what he was doing was simultaneously in line with the contemporary be-bop movement, and also very much apart of it. The singularity of his musical vision was apparent and still very fresh, and as a unique pianist and composer, he was in absolute top form.
This has the 1st 3 sessions that he recorded as a leader, on October 15 and 24 and November 21 of 1947, and as a unique pianist and composer, his uniqueness has never been more apparent or bettered.
