Thelonious Monk Septet: все альбомы, включая Monk's 's Music is often cited as one of the focal points of Thelonious Monk's six-year affiliation 1955-1961 with the Riverside label. Although the original disc clocked in at slightly over 30 minutes, packed into that half hour are not only the introduction of a few of Monk's signature compositions, but also some amazing interactions from the assembled ensemble. Joining Thelonious Monk piano during these two recording sessions are Ray Copeland trumpet, Gigi Gryce alto sax, Coleman Hawkins tenor sax, John Coltrane tenor sax, Wilbur Ware bass, and Art Blakey drums.
