The complete original LP Monk’s Dream (Columbia CS8765), which marks Thelonious Monk’s first LP for Columbia, and which became his best-selling album ever.

It features the pianist / composer performing a combination of his own tunes and his favorite standards, which he made his own. He is backed here by his classic quartet featuring Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, John Ore on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums.

As a bonus, a program consisting of his first studio versions of most of the tunes from the album, some of them dating from a decade earlier, plus a 1961 live solo piano version of “Body and Soul” –a song he first recorded in the studio on Monk’s Dream.
