This reissue of a 1961 Riverside recording features an uncharacteristically crowd-pleasing Thelonious Monk — along with tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse, bassist John Ore and drummer Frankie Dunlop — doing a range of tunes from Monk originals to the great, sudsy "I`m Getting Sentimental Over You." Winsome or not, Monk isn`t going to be mistaken for Tommy Dorsey on that or any other song. Even when he is trying to please, he`s eccentric, edgy and wry.
