    One of my favorite jazz albums. My LP is not in the best condition, but it still sounds pretty damn good.

      This does NOT contain the complete BRILLIANT CORNERS album. It is missing "I Surrender, Dear," which is a piano solo. I know it doesn't specifically say the complete album, but most people would probably assume it is unless they do careful research.

          The Brilliant Corners tracks are mono and the Five By Monk By Five tracks are stereo.
