A TAV Essential Listening Album.

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. - Music On Vinyl

“The mystery and haunting angular beauty of Thelonious Monk's unadorned keyboard sides are the focus of Solo Monk. As if holding the history of jazz in his hands, Monk's solo recordings and performances from every phase of his career remain pure. The components of what made Monk such an uncompromising composer, arranger, and especially bandmember are evident in every note he plays.” - AllMusic
