What a great set of players on this. In addition to Monk you’ve got Coleman Hawkins, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Gigi Gryce, Wilbur Ware, and Ray Copeland. Recorded at Reeves Sound Studios in NYC June 26th, 1957.

Can’t go wrong with Riverside jazz from the ’50s.

My copy is a 2023 reissue by Vinyl Me Please, which is a significant upgrade on a 1977 Gateway reissue with a different cover I had before.
