This is a bit of a must for jazz fans, really: 'Genius of Modern Music Volume One' offers the first recordings of Thelonius Monk as a bandleader, before you could certifiably call him a genius but definite proof of the genius he had. It includes his piece "Round Midnight", an absolute classic that also happens to be one of the only songs comedian Dave Chappelle can perform. This record was originally released by Blue Note a long time ago, but is being reissued as part of the label's 75th birthday. Happy birthday, jazz party people!
