Recorded in three session during 1956 and released on Riverdside records, this is quite simply one of the most important Jazz albums ever made. With it's uncoventional compositional structures, its devlopment of African rhythms and it's reassembling of the rules of bop, this did things which no other Jazz record had done before or since. Monk's company helped as well, as he was joined by Ernie Henry, Sonny Rollins, Oscar Pettiford, Max Roach, Clark Terry and Paul Chambers on the sessions. A must have LP for all music (and not just jazz) fans.
