Remastered and reissued as part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary

Volume 1 of the two volume Genius of Modern Music set comprises the historic first sessions Thelonious Monk recorded as a leader, on October 15 and 24 and November 21 of 1947. A cornerstone of any jazz collection, Volume 1 was originally released as a 10” and then reissued in 1956 as a 12” with previously unissued tracks. A singular and wonderfully off-kilter artist from day one, Genius Of Modern Music Volume 1 includes such classic Monk fare as "Round About Midnight," "Off Minor," "Ruby My Dear," "Thelonious" and "Well You Needn’t" among others. Genius of Modern Music Vol. 1 will be reissued in its original 10” form as part of the overall Blue Note vinyl initiative spearheaded by current President, Don Was.
