"Spotlight Album of the Week ... should be a must for most modern jazz buyers ..." - Billboard "... stands out for Monk's strong comping behind John Coltrane ... Monk plays with restraint, never giving in to the urge to splash his perverse tendencies onto Coltrane's canvas. - Jazz.com "... among the grittiest (music) Monk or Coltrane ever recorded ... the performances are magisterial ... (Coltrane) was with Monk's encouragement discovering his signature, middle period style. The 'sheets of sound' which caused such controversy are there and so too are passages of feline, balladic elegance ... is given immutable cohesion by the empathy between its two, characterful featured artists, one at the top of his game, the other approaching his and, of course, Monk's die cast compositions." - All About Jazz Recorded over three sessions in 1957, when Thelonious Monk was leading a band that included John Coltrane, this historic meeting of two legends was not released until 1961 due to contractual issues. By that time Coltrane was a household name, leading his own band, at least as famous or even more so than Monk. This album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2007.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
