Thelonious Himself is a studio album by Thelonious Monk released in 1957 via Riverside Records, his fourth for the label. The album is notable for featuring Monk on solo piano almost exclusively. The only non-solo performance on the album is the last track, Monk's Mood, which features John Coltrane on tenor saxophone and Wilbur Ware on bass. Monk had previously recorded a solo piano album in Paris during June 1954. Thelonious Himself - Thelonious Monk. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. And so it was decided that Monk's fourth Riverside recording, Thelonious Himself, would be composed entirely of solo interpretations well, almost. Like a great actor finding heretofore obscure layers of meaning in a familiar soliloquy, Monk takes familiar themes such as April in Paris, I Should Care, and Almost Alone and distills them down to a single essence.
