Thelonious Monk
Complete Prestige 10'' Collection (5LP Box)

Thelonious Monk - Complete Prestige 10'' Collection (5LP Box)

Celebrating 100 years of Thelonious Monk, this limited-edition vinyl box set includes all five of the 10” LPs which the legendary pianist recorded for the jazz label, spanning 1952 to 1954. Each album has been faithfully reproduced – from the jacket design to the LP labels, while the audio has been carefully restored and remastered by Joe Tarantino from the original analog tapes, with lacquer cutting by George Horn and Anne-Marie Seunram. Rounding out the collection is a booklet with new liner notes by Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Thelonious Monk: The Life And Times Of An American Original.
