Thelonious Sphere Monk (Rocky Mount, North Carolina 10th October 1917 - Hartsdale, New York 17th February 1982) was a jazz pianist and composer. Widely considered as one of the most important musicians in jazz – he is one of only five jazz musicians to be featured on the cover of Time – Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including "Epistrophy," "'Round Midnight," "Blue Monk," "Straight No Chaser" and "Well, You Needn't.

This is the sixth studio album cut by Thelonious Monk under the of Teo Macero for Columbia and as such should not be confused with the original motion picture soundtrack to the 1988 film of the same name. The band featured here includes: Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), Ben Riley (drums), and Larry Gales (bass). This would be the final quartet Monk would assemble to record with in the studio. While far from being somber, this unit retained a mature flavor which would likewise place Monk's solos in a completely new context

Perhaps those who had followed Monk in his day experienced the repetition more directly as each new album appeared in sequence, but today this album's energy really stands up. Listening to it in a 21st century retrospective context probably makes the stigmas and ethos present in the late 1960s jazz scene seem less relevant.
