Pianist-composer Thelonious Monk's final recording sessions as a leader, captured live in London during a Giants of Jazz tour. The second volume features Monk with bassist Al McKibbon and drummer Art Blakey on eight trio renditions of Monk's tunes. Although all of the material had been recorded and performed by Monk many times before, these versions sound quite fresh. Highlights include "Evidence," the complex "Criss Cross," "Nutty" and "Hackensack." This entire series is well worth picking up, as Monk proves to be in prime form during this final effort.

A1 Evidence
