THE DEFINITIVE VERSION OF THELONIOUS MONK'S BEST-EVER-SELLING ALBUM: KEEPSAKE EDITION STRICTLY LIMITED TO 6,000 NUMBERED COPIES

Original Master Recording from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi)

The historical import, musical genius, and timeless artistry of Monk's Dream can be best appreciated by first placing the record in the context of its era. In short, Thelonious Monk's joyful Columbia Records debut triggered a domino effect of mainstream attention, best-selling success, and unstinting respect that led him to become one of only six jazz musicians to ever grace the cover of Time – then America's most widely read weekly magazine. Couple the extraordinary feat with the fact the British Invasion and Beatlemania were already un full swing, and the cultural significance – not to mention its place in the jazz canon – of Monk's Dream skyrockets to near-unthinkable heights.

  1. Monk's Dream
  2. Body and Soul
  3. Bright Mississippi
  4. Five Spot Blues
  5. Bolivar Blues
  6. Just a Gigolo
  7. Bye-Ya
  8. Sweet and Lovely

Strictly limited to 6,000 numbered copies, pressed on MoFi SuperVinyl at RTI, and mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's ultra-hi-fi UltraDisc One-Step 180g 45RPM 2LP collector's edition pays tribute to the 1963 album's merit and enhances the music for generations to come. Surpassing the sonics of every other prior version, this spectacular collector's edition strips away any remaining film and limiting ceilings to provide a clear, transparent, and up-close view of a set that inspired DownBeat to award the record a five-star review in which critic Pete Welding correctly proclaimed it "a stunning reaffirmation of [Monk's] powers as a performer and composer."

The lavish packaging and gorgeous presentation of the UD1S Monk's Dream pressing befit its extremely select status. Housed in a deluxe box, it features special foil-stamped jackets and faithful-to-the-original graphics that illuminate the splendor of the recording.
