When Monk and Trane spent six months of 1957 working together at New York's Five Spot Cafe, it was an historic event which certainly should have been exhaustively recorded. But nonmusical conflicts made that impossible, leaving as the only permanent reminders of this momentous encounter the three remarkable quartet selections that highlight this album.

with Coleman Hawkins, Ray Copeland, Gigi Gryce, Wilbur Ware, Art Blakey, Shadow Wilson
