Although nostalgia has allowed Monk's Blues to age more gracefully than perhaps the recording deserves, it remains an unfortunate fact that Thelonious Sphere Monk's final studio sessions were very poorly conceived. The idea of Monk performing with a big band was inspired nobly enough by the February '59 NYC Town Hall performance which was issued as Thelonious Monk Orchestra at Town Hall. These studio recordings fall far short of that classic live encounter. However there are a few brief moments of inspiration that are not overcome by random blasts from an over driven hollow soun.

Monk's Blues' was panned by the critics when it was originally issued in 1969 and although some of Oliver Nelson's arrangements are not ideal for Monk there's much to enjoy on this album. Highlights of the eleven tracks include 'Straight No Chaser' with exuberant solos from Monk & Rouse and an impressive solo piano version of ''Round Midnight'. Probably the least known of all Monk's albums 'Monk's Blues' is nowhere near as bad as the critics made out and deserves to be heard. Read more. 2 people found this helpful
