Thelonious Monk - Brilliant Corners download album

Brilliant Corners is a studio album by American jazz musician Thelonious Monk. It was his third album for Riverside Records, and the first, for this label, to include his own compositions. The complex title track required over a dozen takes in the studio. The album was recorded in three sessions in late 1956 with two different quintets.

Although Brilliant Corners is Thelonious Monk's third disc for Riverside, it's the first on the label to weigh in with such heavy original material. Enthusiasts who become jaded to the idiosyncratic nature of Monk's playing or his practically arithmetical chord progressions should occasionally revisit Brilliant Corners. There is an inescapable freshness and vitality saturated into every measure of every song. The passage of time makes it all the more difficult to imagine any other musicians bearing the capacity to support Monk with such ironic precision

Here, John Fordham examines the brilliant corners of Thelonious Monk. There are more than 3m new pages for you to explore as well as 600,000-plus artists' pages – so if, for example, you prefer your jazz to come in the shape of, er, The Shape of Jazz to Come, or think a better choice is John Coltrane's A Love Supreme, then find their albums and get to work.

The best jazz works are organized sloppiness, and it's what made Thelonious Monk the genius that he was. On Genius of Modern Music Volume 1, Monk presented a tight, unique stature for his work to flow. On Brilliant Corners, he let it flow. As a whole, Brilliant Corners might be the Magnum Opus of all that is Bebop. No other record has the essence of fast and hard, bouncy jazz like Corners does. When some parts are an obvious Bop parsody, others are freely played, with soul and a laid back atmospheres
