Columbia CS 9149 was the third solo piano album of Thelonius Monk. Monk started his recital with a version of “Dinah”. “I Should Care” and its pianistic technique and control are both striking and effective. He also included two of his own best melodies: “Ask Me Now” and “Ruby, My Dear”. He could take the simplest note and make it feel valuable in any way because Monk knew the worth of every sound he made and the pauses he allowed. Truly, he is a rare musician for any genre of music.
