AllMusic Review by

This bootleg LP features a typical program by Thelonious Monk's Quartet in 1963. In addition to "Sweet and Lovely," the group (featuring tenor-saxophonist Charlie Rouse) performs four of the pianist's compositions ("Bright Mississippi," "Epistrophy," "'Round Midnight" and "Evidence"). Recording quality is okay and no real surprises occur but Monk completists will want to search for this obscure set.
