8/10 Jack Customer review, 17th February 2015
Face it--if you're not predisposed to liking the compositions and/or piano stylings of Thelonious Monk, you're not going to buy this album anyway. But since you're on this webpage, it's presumed that either you haven't heard much of Monk if any, and are curious to investigate; or you already have some Monk in your collection and are wondering whether this distillation of Monk into trio form is worth your investment. On both counts, I say there is no question. And if you're new to Monk, it's hard to think of a better starting-point than this album.
