Monk's Music is among the most significant of Thelonious's classic Riverside albums. Here he was literally looking back and ahead at the time, by bringing together Coleman Hawkins (the very first important voice on tenor saxaphone) and John Coltrane(on the verge of becoming a major shaping force of the '60's). Equally notable is the incredible rhythmic support provided by combining Art Blakey and Wilbur Ware. Justifying the album title, a selection of vital Monk compositions plus his choice of the 19th century hymn, "Abide With Me" (written by William H. Monk)
