Newly Remastered for Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl!

Newly-remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.

Belonging in every jazz collection, volume one of Thelonious Monk's 1947 10" Genius of Modern Music features the first sessions Monk recorded as a leader. In 1956 Blue Note reissued this iconic album as a 12" and added previously unissued tracks. It is impossible to overstate the importance of these sessions as they include some of the earliest Monk recordings that would become standards, including "Round Midnight" which is now one of the most popular jazz compositions ever recorded.
