Thelonious Monk ‎– Criss-Cross

Notes:
This is Thelonious Monk's second album for Columbia Records, planned to be completed over three consecutive afternoons, from February 25 to 27, 1963 at Columbia's 30th Street Studio, N.Y. Session break-down:
25 Feb. - Tea For Two (Rouse out)
26 Feb. - Think Of One
27 Feb. - Tea For Two (Rouse out), Criss Cross, Eronel, Don't Blame Me (piano solo)

An additional session necessary to fill up the album on March 29 yielded Pannonica and Crepuscule With Nellie, but Pannonica was not used for this album and only added to the first reissues on CD in 1993. Still too meagre for a full album, two compositions recorded during the first sessions for Columbia in November 1962 were added to finally complete this album, viz. Hackensack and Rhythm-a-ning.

Tracklist

Hackensack 4:12
Tea For Two 3:46
Criss-Cross 4:52
Eronel 4:29
Rhythm-A-Ning 3:53
Don't Blame Me 7:04
Think Of One 5:17
Crepuscule With Nellie 2:45

Fantastic release. Dead quite and very dynamic. Everything you would expect from Bernie Grundman and Pallas. More importantly, the music is absolutely exceptional.

Blocked for sale on here, yet HMV UK are selling it on the high street ?? Anyway it plays fine with a nice sound and comes in a poly lined inner sleeve. Well worth the £12

The number at the bottom right of the back of the sleeve (4, 7, etc.) references the printing company and has nothing to do with the vinyl.
