Monk-Led Trio Featuring Art Blakey on Numbered, Limited Edition Clear Vinyl LP!

Destination Moon present a reissue of Thelonious Monk's The Unique, originally released in 1956. Pioneering bebopper and unorthodox pianist Thelonious Monk was largely underacknowledged for the role he played in changing jazz forever. The Unique Thelonious Monk, the second of his LPs for Riverside, was recorded in 1956 with bassist/cellist Oscar Pettiford, who Monk had bonded with in Coleman Hawkins' band, and the wildcard drummer Art Blakey, pushing things farther into the realm of experimentation, despite the set being comprised of jazz standards. Thus, "Tea for Two" becomes a hard-bop romp and "Honeysuckle Rose" has lashings of outré diversions - plenty of fun for all Monk devotees.
