Most remarkable is “Four in One,” which after one of Monk’s happiest (and very rhythmic) solos features the orchestra playing a Hal Overton transcription of a complex and rather exuberant Monk solo taken from his original record. […]

BradL @ RateYourMusic
Monk apparently had to be pushed into playing with the big bandand the musicians were unrehearsed, but it doesn’t show a bit. […]

R. Anderson @ Amazon
I don’t know why this album isn’t looked upon with such favor by many people. It is great. And for those who question Monk’s skill as a pianist, sit back and take in his solo interpretation of “Darkness on the Delta.” […]
