|180-gram audiophile vinyl.
An historic 1957 match-up of two jazz pioneers: drummer Art Blakey (with the intense hard-bop of his Jazz Messengers) and pianist/composer Thelonious Monk. Five classic Monk compositions plus tenor saxman Johnny Griffin's 'Purple Shades' are featured on what became Monk's first and only recordings for Atlantic Records. The Penguin Guide To Jazz called it 'absolutely indispensable jazz'. New exclusive liner notes by Mitch Myers. Audiophile remastering from the original master tapes.
Shipping note: Please note that there is a $4.00 surchage added to U.S. orders using expedited shipping. Canadian customers will be charged an additional $2.00 shipping and the rest of the world will have $5.00 added for each LP.
