    Thelonious Monk Trio () Monk left Blue Note for Prestige, which did get him into the studio and onto LP, even though the results were mixed. Working with a badly out of tune piano is a striking way to present Monk's advanced harmonies and minimalist voicings, but doesn't always produce the most accessible results.

    This LP concludes with one of Monk's most memorable pieces on the fun and freewheeling "Just You, Just Me." The trio struts and glides as Monk's intricate fingering simultaneously displays his physical dexterity as well as his ability to play so deftly in the moment.

    Thelonious Monk could really shine in the trio setting, where his unflagging creativity and memorable tunes could occupy the spotlight. These ten selections from '52 to '54 showcase that side of Monk wonderfully; and almost all of them are brief (less than 4 minutes), providing bite-sized intros to a nice chunk of his material.5/5(4).
