Ah, Thelonious Monk. More distinctive a jazzman there is not. Even when obscured and peering from within the album sleeve of Misterioso, it’s still him alright. The music concurs; swinging brass, tinkling keys and shimmering cymbals shine across this 8 track LP of a live recording from 1958. Get in the groove man.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd December 2017
This is a beautifully arranged body of work centring on Jim Stubblefield's melodic guitar work. The true beauty of this album however is its eclectic approach to the music it sets forth. Each piece is done in a different style of guitar work, every song is different and special in its own way, yet they also work as a whole, with pieces arranged so that they can fade soothingly into the background or surge up with all the spirit of the fire for which the group was named. Misterioso is another timeless testament to Thelonious Monk's groundbreaking legacy.
