At first glance this set contains tracks that seem to be all over the place with respect to career milestones and time frames. Most sets in this Kind Of series cluster around the mid-to-late 1950s for the artists who are topics of the sets. This one goes pretty heavy on the mid-to-late 1940s to early 1950s, with some mid-to-late 1950s and some material that was recorded as late as 1967. There is coherence to the composition of the set though. Nearly all of the tracks feature Monk as a leader. This is a departure from other sets in this series where it's a mix of leader and sideman.

Arthur Edward Pepper Jr. (September 1, 1925 – June 15, 1982) was an American alto saxophonist and very occasional tenor saxophonist and clarinetist. A longtime figure in West Coast jazz, Pepper came to prominence in Stan Kenton's big band. He was known for his emotionally charged performances and several stylistic shifts throughout his career, and was described by critic Scott Yanow as "the world's great altoist" at the time of his death.

Dans cette collection de compils, The Quintessence, dirigée par le prolifique écrivain de jazz, essayiste et romancier Alain Gerber, surgissent des gemmes considérables. Comme celle, noire comme un diamant, consacrée à Thelonious Monk, qu’on comparerait volontiers à cet aérolithe qui hante 2001 : l’Odyssée de l’espace, de Stanley Kubrick, et émet une musique cosmique connue de tous. Supplique aux jeunes gens qui croit connaître Thelonious Monk : écoutez son premier "Round midnight", enregistré en quintet, en 1947, pour Blue Note. Suivront étonnements et émerveillements inquiets puis admiration définitive pour celui que la critique avait désigné de son vivant comme « The Prophet of modern jazz ». Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917-1982), pianiste, compositeur, prophétise encore aujourd’hui un jazz qui bannit toute joliesse, toute complaisance.

In making Dizzy Atmosphere, Dave Douglas’s tribute to the great trumpeter, composer and humanist, Douglas said he wanted to explore Dizzy’s experimental and wide open mind as well as the influence of his music.

Monk's compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations. His style was not universally appreciated; the poet and jazz critic Philip Larkin dismissed him as "the elephant on the keyboard".

Thelonious Sphere Monk (October 10, 1917 – February 17, 1982) was an American jazz pianist and composer. He had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including "'Round Midnight", "Blue Monk", "Straight, No Chaser", "Ruby, My Dear", "In Walked Bud", and "Well, You Needn't". Monk is the second-most-recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed more than a thousand pieces, whereas Monk wrote about 70.

AVID Jazz presents four classic Thelonious Monk albums on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. CD1 kicks off in fine style with ‘Thelonious Monk Plays The Music Of Duke Ellington’ recorded in New Jersey way back in 1955. Here Monk takes on an entire album of Ellington standards foregoing any of his own classic compositions in homage to the great man! CD1 continues with the meeting of two jazz giants on the classic album ‘Thelonious Monk & Sonny Rollins’ recorded a couple of years earlier between 1953-4. The guys nearly didn’t make the session when their cab was rammed by a motorcycle, on the way to the studio.. fortunately for us they made the date!

AVID Jazz here presents four classic Jimmy Raney albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. A much travelled jazz guitarist Jimmy Raney was born in Louisville Kentucky in 1927, the son of a prominent newspaperman. Starting his musical career in 1944 with the Jerry Wald band, Jimmy would spend time with among others Max Miller and Lou Levy, toured with Woody Herman, worked with Al Haig, Buddy De Franco and Artie Shaw and in 1950 joined up with the Stan Getz Quintet to produce a unique sounding combo sound during their two years together. By 1953 he was on the move again this time hooking up with Red Norvo.
