Concord Music Group re-releases Thelonious Monk’s seminal 1957 LP Brilliant Corners. Mostly comprised of original compositions (a solo rendition of Harry Barris’s ‘I Surrender Dear’ the only exception), Brilliant Corners remains one of the pianist’s best-loved studio albums, and has since become a staple in countless jazz collections. Masterfully accompanied by heavy-hitters like Sonny Rollins, Max Roach and Paul Chambers, Monk runs through future modern jazz classics like the structurally intricate title track, spacious blues ‘Ba-Lue Bolivar Ba-Lues-Are’ and starry-eyed swinger ‘Pannonica’, which features a quirky celestial solo from the bandleader.
