Personnel: Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone); Julius Watkins (French horn); Thelonius Monk (piano); Percy Heath, Tommy Potter (upright bass); Art Blakey, Arthur Taylor, Willie Jones (drums).
Recording information: Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey (1954).
These five tracks, recorded in the 1950s and reissued in 2006, feature Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins--two of the era's most progressive musicians--on the stand together. The interplay between Monk's skeletal, idiosyncratic, yet strangely logical playing and Rollins's full, rich tone and adventurous harmonic explorations complement each other beautifully on both standards ("The Way You Look Tonight") and Monk originals ("Friday the 13th"). "Friday the 13th" is the highlight of the set, featuring plenty of stretching out from Rollins, Monk, and French horn player Julius Watkins. This is a fine addition to any Monk and/or Rollins collection.
