The seven-song Unique Thelonious Monk (1956) platter was the pianist's second during his remarkable five-year tenure on Riverside. His debut for the label was the aptly titled Plays Duke Ellington (1955) and once again, on this disc, Monk's song selection did not feature any original compositions. Rather, the well-chosen standards included exemplify and help further establish the pianist and bandleader within the context of familiar melodies at the head of a trio - consisting of Oscar Pettiford (bass) and Art Blakey (drums).
Thelonious Monk was a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, using dissonance as an asset rather than a mistake. His compositions and playing style are uniquely his and his alone. Though often imitated, no one has ever come close to matching what he was pulling off 70 years ago! Throughout his recorded career, he can be heard playing solo piano, with small combos and with big bands and orchestras. Brilliant Corners is pretty much the Monk record for anyone interested in diving into his rather-massive catalogue. For one, it features some truly killer album art that inspires feelings of pure joy anytime you glance at it-look how happy he is! And then there are the tune. y god, the tunes.
