    Straight, No Chaser

    Limited To 3,000 Individually Numbered Copies


    First Time On All-Analog


    Features The Complete, Unedited Performances Of Thelonious Monk's Classic Sessions


    Mastered From The Original Tapes By Kevin Gray And Robert Pincus At Cohearant Audio


    Pressed At RTI For Superior Playback Quality


    Monk's introspective 6th LP for Columbia contains some of the pianist's most mature works, including a striking re-working of the classic title track, an evocative modal twist on Japanese folk music, and the swinging bop of We See, all lensed through the transformative interplay of his quartet (also featured on Monk's Dream). Impex's deluxe all-analog 2-LP set includes the original six tracks (three of which are presented in their original uncut length on LP for the first time) and the bonus track Green Chimneys. These extensions, beautifully remastered by Kevin Gray and Robert Pincus at Cohearent Audio, give fuller, richer expression to Thelonious Monk's genius as a performer of unparalleled spiritual and technical facility.

    Miles Davis And The Modern Jazz Giants

    Here are tracks from one of the truly classic sessions, in which a combination of jazz giants gathered in Rudy Van
    Gelder's studio on a chilly Christmas Eve in 1954. With Thelonious Monk and three quarters of the Modern Jazz
    Quartet (Jackson, Heath, and Clarke) as his accomplices, Miles Davis blends sophisticated harmonic knowledge
    with raw, spontaneous invention to produce extraordinary music. This is a strong addition to any jazz collection.

    Thelonious Himself

    Because Thelonious Monk's artistic vision was so personal and peculiar, hearing him in a solo setting is perhaps the best way to begin to understand him.


    This 1957 album was his first to consist of exclusively solo material. His lines are fractured, his ideas are deliberate, his mood is introspective, and the end result is an album of both stunning beauty and jarring surprise, often at once. The three originals included are all significant: Functional shows how Monk's irregularities translate into a blues format. 'Round Midnight, his most famous composition, is boiled down to its very core. The finale Monk's Mood is a fragile ballad that eventually adds color from tenor John Coltrane and bassist Wilbur Ware--the only spot on the record with accompaniment.


    That said, it's equally as fascinating to hear Monk reinvent the five timeless standards in his own image.

    Talk Thelonious


    Plated & pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    NRBQ founder Terry Adams pays tribute to his favorite pianist/composer on his album, Talk Thelonious. Adams says it's been a lifetime in the making. I finally realized it was something I was supposed to do. The music on Talk Thelonious is physical and cerebral, simple and complex, and full of pleasant surprises. The album features all the members of NRBQ and the Whole Wheat Horns with an added guest. Both Adams arrangements and the performances stay true to the genius of Thelonious Monk while still going to some new and exciting places.


    Highlights include a rollicking Hornin In, an understated but breathtaking Monks Mood, a playful, buoyant That Old Man, a pedal steel-driven, two-stepping Straight No Chaser, and Ruby, My Dear, the albums tour de force with a triplet-driven rhythm section and tremolo electric guitar embellished sparingly by horns, strings, chromatic harmonica, flutes and accordion.

    The Unique Thelonious Monk

    Thelonious Monk's second album for Riverside continued the label's initial plant to broaden his audience by the use of recognizable standard tunes instead of his somewhat frightening originals. Thelonious's uncompromising performances, major-league support from Art Blakey and Oscar Pettiford, and strong material all helped turn this concept into lastingly superior jazz. Particularly notable are his sharp thrusts of humor on such well-worn pieces as Honeysuckle Rose and Tea for Two. The album's impact was strengthened by one of the most unique covers ever devised, Riverside actually went so far as to print quantities of almost postage-sized Monk stamps.

    Thelonious Monk Trio

    Backed alternately by bassists Percy Heath and Gary Mapp and drummers Art Blakey and Max Roach, Monk pours forth his idiosyncratic virtuosity in this
    set of tunes recorded by the inimitable Rudy Van Gelder. Beautifully rendered, "Blue Monk" is the highlight of the album, adventurously combining
    disharmonic riffs within a melodic and very memorable structure. Monk's explorations conjure up images of a mathematician working out geometric
    patterns on the keyboard and evoke a sublime beauty as they build order out of chaos. Intimate, intense, and inspired, Thelonious Monk Trio is a must-have for those ready to dive into the genius of Monk.

    Thelonious Alone In San Francisco

    The varied catalog of memorable Riverside albums by Thelonious Monk includes two solo-piano efforts. Producer Orrin Keepnews remembers them as equally successful but strikingly different projects. The 1957 Thelonious Himself was recorded in New York on three separate nights and involved much creative ferment and many re-takes. This album was accomplished with remarkable ease in Northern California two years later, in two brief sessions on consecutive afternoons (one preceded by lunch at a family-style Italian restaurant), with only one of the ten selections (a totally unfamiliar old pop tune arbitrarily chosen at the last moment) requiring more than one take.

    Thelonious Monk & Sonny Rollins

    Collected from three separate recording sessions held between November of 1953 and October of 1954, this Prestige release does indeed feature the pairing of the two jazz giants Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins, but only on three of the album's five tracks. Monk is the mainstay throughout however, presented here in trio, quartet and quintet settings. It is the quintet numbers with Rollins, that both open (The Way You Look Tonight, I Want To Be Happy) and close (Friday the 13th) the album, that shine the brightest though, the distinct nuances of Rollins' tenor wonderfully contrasting Monk's artful piano lines!

    Solo Monk

    Recorded in late 1964 and produced by Teo Macero, Solo Monk is the 8th album Thelonious Monk released for Columbia Records. As the title implies, this album consists purely of Monk's solo piano playing. He handles classic Pop standards like Dinah and Sweet And Lovely, but beautifully executes his own compositions like the bluesy North Of The Sunset, Ruby, My Dear and Monk's Point. If there is any album to own by Thelonious Monk, Solo Monk is clearly it.

    Special Vinyl Reissue


    This Is One Of Monk's Pivotal Recordings And Is An Essential Addition To All Jazz Collections.


    Monk's Music is often cited as one of the focal points of Thelonious Monk's six-year affiliation (1955-1961) with the Riverside label. Although the original
    disc clocked in at slightly over 30 minutes, packed into that half hour are not only the introduction of a few of Monk's signature compositions, but also
    some amazing interactions from the assembled ensemble. Joining Thelonious Monk (piano) during these two recording sessions are Ray Copeland
    (trumpet), Gigi Gryce (alto sax), Coleman Hawkins (tenor sax), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Wilbur Ware (bass), and Art Blakey (drums).
    This special vinyl re-issue of Monk's classic album is not to be missed!


    Thelonious Monk: the legendary jazz pianist and composer, considered one of the giants of American music.

    At The Blackhawk

    The near-impromptu results of 1960's live LP At The Blackhawk are a triumph of jazz improvisation. Monk was
    scheduled to make a sextet album as co-leader with drummer Shelly Manne, but after two days' work, the chemistry wasn't there. The producer added Harold Land and Joe Gordon to the Monk working group for one night at the San Francisco nightclub, and the results were solid, thanks to the unquenchable spirit of Thelonious Monk.
