Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane - The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings (Deluxe 3-LP Box Set)

For an all-too-brief, magical time in 1957, two of the greatest musicians in history -- Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane -- performed together every night at New York's Five Spot Cafe and between April and July of that year, they made their only studio recordings together.

Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane’s Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings is a deluxe 3-LP box set featuring new artwork, rare photos and 180-gram vinyl pressed at RTI from lacquers cut by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. The collection features such stellar musicians as Art Blakey, Wilbur Ware, Coleman Hawkins, Shadow Wilson, Ray Copeland and Gigi Gryce. Rounding out the package is an insightful essay by the late Orrin Keepnews, who, as producer of the original sessions, was present at the creation of every note.
