Vinyl Reissue Series Commemorates 65th Anniversary of Prestige Records and 90th Birthday of Legendary Engineer Rudy Van Gelder!

Monk is an album by jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk recorded for the Prestige label. This 1954 release was recorded by Monk with two different quintets. The first set included Ray Copeland, Frank Foster, Curly Russell and Art Blakey. The second session features Julius Watkins, Sonny Rollins, Percy Heath and Willie Jones.

"...solid throughout, with Monk and company demonstrating their ability to vacillate between the ultra-sublime update of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" and the hardcore bop of "Locomotion" and "Hackensack."" -Lindsay Planer,
