Monk's Dream is an album by jazz pianist Thelonious Monk that was released by Columbia Records in March 1963. Bye-Ya" and "Bolivar Blues" were recorded on October 31, 1962; "Body and Soul" and "Bright Mississippi" on November 1; "Sweet and Lovely", "Just a Gigolo" and "Monk's Dream" on November 2; and "Five Spot Blues" on November 6. "Bright Mississippi" is the only track on the album that Monk had not previously recorded

By "pure," one means a two-LP set of unaccompanied piano solos from one of the most unique stylists in jazz history. Most of these 21 solos were originally on Thelonious Himself and Thelonious Alone in San Francisco while four others were solo tracks that were part of other albums of the period

Thelonious Monk was a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, using dissonance as an asset rather than a mistake. His compositions and playing style are uniquely his and his alone. Though often imitated, no one has ever come close to matching what he was pulling off 70 years ago! Throughout his recorded career, he can be heard playing solo piano, with small combos and with big bands and orchestras. No matter what is happening around him, the music always has a specifically unique Monk-ness to it. Let’s do this.
