Great late era Monk! Though some of these songs are re-recordings of older tunes, the revisiting is definately worthwhile. They remain not too far from what you remember, but played with enough shaded experience as to affect just differently enough. This is perfectly what you might expect from a Monk album: bouncy piano, moody, atmospheric introspection, and delightful accompaniment from a few of his great colaborators such as Charlie Rouse in a tight small band.
Highly recommended for those just getting into jazz or rounding out their Monk collections.
