AllMusic Review by

A collection of live concert recordings from 1963-1964, this is Monk's excellent quartet shining brightly. Tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse in particular is playing at a very high level, and Monk is inspired, playing a handful of his compositions and standards in extended form. The sound is as good as it gets. Highly recommended.
