Trane’s solo is awesome, a great example of his early pre-sheets of sound style. Other than that, nothing particularly jumped out at me on this album. Good solos all round though. […]

All About Jazz
This collection essentially documents two important summit meetings from some of the greatest individuals jazz has ever known. Hyperbole aside, the results are significant and timeless. […]

Monk actually did not get along all that welland the trumpeter did not want Monk playing behind his solos. Still, a great deal of brilliant music occurred on the day of their encounter […]
