One of Thelonious Monk's finest bands was the quartet he led in 1958 that featured tenor-saxophonist Johnny Griffin. Griffin sounded quite comfortable playing Monk's music and his fiery style really inspired the pianist/composer. This two-LP set (whose contents are also available on Monk's massive CD box The Complete Riverside Recordings) has many great moments including "In Walked Bud," "Nutty," and "Let's Cool One" and makes one regret that this band did not stay together for a much longer period. ~ Scott Yanow
