A previously unreleased, precious lost treasure from one of Monk’s most critically acclaimed line-ups; Charlie Rouse on saxophone, John Ore on double bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums.

Known as the “High Priest of Bebop.”, Monk is part of the ‘Holy Trinity’ of legendary jazz musicians, made up of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk.

Tracks include renditions of the famous 'Nutty' and 'Bye-Ya.' Monk composed over sixty-odd pieces which are still circulating in the jazz repertoire, more than any other jazz composer.

The vinyl format is a genuine AAA release (analogue recording, analogue mix, analogue master) using the original source tapes, making it a true all analogue, audiophile primed release.

Cut in-house with Gearbox’s 1967 Haeco Scully lathe, the exact same lathe as Blue Note used back in the day.
