Cornbread Records present a reissue of The Unique Thelonious Monk, originally released in 1956. Recorded in 1956, The Unique Thelonious Monk is the pianist’s second LP of standards. Though the recording was his label’s attempt at reaching a larger audience, this is in no way watered down; Thelonious Monk takes his unique interpretive approach to tracks from the likes of the Gershwins and Rodgers & Hart. With the help of a crack rhythm section of Art Blakey and Oscar Pettiford, this is one of Monk’s early career highlights and a truly unique piece of ’50s piano trio jazz. Reissued here on 180 gram vinyl; Includes a download card.
