      Personally, this sounds great to me for the era it was recorded. These weird 70's Milestone/Douglas reissues with wack covers/titles seem like a great way to score great music cheap... if you don't mind the crappy repackaging. Some of the Eric Dolphy and Sonny Rollins comps are similar.

        In the spirit of great musical pairings such as Diz and Bird, Ella and Joe, Duke and Billy, we bring you two equally creative geniuses, Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane. There was a brief period in the late '50s when Coltrane joined Monk's gig at the Five Spot Cafe, which ultimately bore a set of live recordings, as well as this amazing studio record from '57.

        Hearing this for the very first time, I am pleasantly surprised at the free flow of musical ideas being exchanged between two titans of hard-bop. Monk would very soon after build his famous trio with Charlie Rouse and record all of these tunes. However, hearing Coltrane playing Monk heads and exploring Monk changes while being accompanied by Monk himself, is a thrill in and of itself. During "Well, You Needn't", as Monk ends his solo, he shouts, "Coltrane...Coltrane!", and JC snatches the baton. Art Blakey serves up some tasty drum casserole. There's also a healthy bit of Dexter Gordon playing tenor(sides B & C), but you can identify him quite easily.

        The recording is great, slightly boxy sounding, but my ears adjusted quickly and who cares about sound quality when the most important element is the playing? This may be the first Coltrane recording I've heard where he does not sound huge in the mix. Nevertheless, his playing is strong and rises above.

        There's so much to love about this record. Grab it if you can find it.
