Gabriel Solis provides an historical, cultural, and analytical study of this landmark recording. Offering in-depth analytical discussions of each composition, as well aa Monk's and Coltrane's improvisational performances he provides insight into Monk's impact on Coltrane as he developed his signature "sheets of sound" style, as well as into the influence of a strong side-man, like Coltrane, on Monk at his creative and professional peak. The first study of one of the most significant jazz releases of the twenty-first century, "Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall" is essential reading for all jazz scholars, students, musicians, and fans.
