Between 1961 and 1965 Monk toured regularly with a quartet that featured Charlie Rouse on tenor sax and a revolving bassist and drummer, and was particularly well received (and documented) in Europe. MONK 'ROUND THE WORLD collects seven tracks from those years.The tunes are among Monk's best, and have rightfully become standards--they wl be famiar to anyone with a knowledge of classic jazz. The sprightly, angular sections of "Epistrophy," the stealthy groove-prowl of "Blue Monk," the beautiful ballad "Ruby, My Dear," and the witty, spastic "Rhythm-A-Ning" are included here in excellent versions. The three quartets featured (with Monk and Rouse the constants) splay stellar rapport, exploring the quirks and possibities of Monk's songs. The sc comes with a bonus DVD of in-concert footage, making this a definitive document/package of latter-period Monk.Etorial ReviewsRouse is a delight here, mixing lots of things you don't usually hear him doing with his more famiar devices.JazzTimes MINT CD E' COME NUOVO
