  • Numerous Thelonious Monk live dates were released during his career (and posthumously), but 1959's THE THELONIOUS MONK ORCHESTRA AT TOWN HALL is one of the finest. In large part the album stands out for the novelty of hearing Monk play with a large ensemble. The tentet featured here has the guts and punch of a big band, but the agility of a small group (a necessary quality when rendering Monk's complex, angular tunes). The program features some of the legend's finest compositions, including "Monk's Mood" and "Off Minor," and the playing throughout is first rate. A classic any way you slice it, and the 2007 remaster brings it all into shining crystalline clarity.
