For his first trio recording in 15 years, producer Alan Bates sent Thelonious Monk into the studio with his old buddy Art Blakey. It has been said more than once that Blakey is the ideal drummer for Monk, and one only has to hear the two together again to appreciate the truth of that statement. If it seems as if Blakey puts too much pressure on the pianist at times, that is indeed the nature of their musical relationship. And, throughout the session, Blakey seems to vie with the producer, alternately cajoling or coercing Monk into fulfilling the various requests of the small, invited audience.
