“Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane” contains some alternate takes of pieces already issued and some entirely new records. “Functional” was a magnificent, unaccompanied piano solo. It was the alternate version to the one included on the LP “Thelonious Himself” and different from the original that critics thought it should have been given another label. “Off Minor and Epistrophy” are alternate and simpler renditions of performances from the septet that produced “Monk's Music.” The former had very good solos by Monk, Hawkins, and Copeland, the latter solos by Coltrane and Copeland.

Keywords:   Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Functional, Thelonius Himself, Off Minor and Epistrophy
