Thelonious Monk: With John Coltrane (Vinyl LP)
Some miracles get broken up into small bits, leaving fate, circumstance and the right people at the right time to reconstruct them. That John Coltrane played with Thelonious Monk in 1957 remains one of those astounding miracles. The album contains three unforgettable tracks featuring Monk and Coltrane grooving away beautifully. "Ruby, My Dear" contains a mellow, lush feel suitable for sitting back, "Trinkle, Tinkle," a definitely interesting Monk-ish title, showcases Coltrane's insane chops and "Nutty," one of Monk's most beguilingly catchy tunes. Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane melded together inexplicably and created some of the most amazing tracks ever laid down in the name of jazz. The album contains 2 Bonus tracks.
