Round Midnight: Complete Blue Note Singles 1947-52
The arrival of Monk’s first recordings in the late ’40s signaled a change in jazz and also in Blue Note Records. Previously, the label had been an outlet for boogie woogie and old-time jazz; now, they were emerging as a leading purveyor of hard bop, at the forefront of jazz. Here, for the first time, are Monk’s watershed Blue Note tracks in their original 78 RPM sequence, with bonus alternate takes: Thelonious; ’Round About Midnight; Epistrophy; Evidence; Monk’s Mood; Straight No Chaser; April in Paris; Skippy; Criss-Cross; alternate takes of Evonce; Well You Needn’t; Who Knows; Four in One, and more! Blue Note.
