A great Bop album full of firsts and rarities: Thelonious Monk's only Riverside appearance as a sideman; the first of trumpeter Terry's many recordings on flugelhorn; the first of a great many Riverside dates for the great bassist Sam Jones; and the only occasion on which Monk and drummer Philly Joe Jones recorded together. Key tracks are "One Foot in The Gutter", "Argentina" and the only track by Monk, "Let's Cool One". Bandleader Terry Clarke steers this ace band through tracks such as "One Foot In The Gutter," "Buck's Business," "Very Near Blue," "Trust In Me" and the title track.
Used, 2010's pressing on Riverside/Contemporary. Sleeve still in shrink, vinyl virtually unplayed.
