An extension of the popular Original Jazz Classics series (est. 1982), the new OJC Remasters releases reveal the sonic benefits of 24-bit remastering-a technology that didn't exist when these titles were originally issued on compact disc. The addition of newly-written liner notes further enhances the illuminating quality of the OJC Remasters reissues. "Each of the recordings in this series is an all-time jazz classic," says Nick Phillips, Vice President of Jazz and Catalog A&R at Concord Music Group and producer of the series.
Recorded in the spring of 1957 but not released until four years later, Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane was instantly hailed as one of the greatest achievements in either musician's career. "What can you say about this combination?" says Phillips. "These are two of the most legendary and influential artists in jazz, together in the same recording."
Orrin Keepnews, producer of the original recording and author of the new liner notes for the reissue, suggests that "one way of looking at the sudden acceptance of these two previously much underappreciated but - as we have now all known for a full half-century - truly monumental artists, might be simply to accept their triumph as an incredibly important idea whose time had now suddenly arrived."
"Monk's Mood," a Monk/Coltrane recording that was originally released on the otherwise all-solo Thelonious Himself album, is added as a bonus track.
