Allmusic.com gave Genious of Modern Music a 5 star review:
Genius of Modern Music set comprises the first sessions Thelonious Monk recorded as a leader, on October 15 and 24 and November 21 of 1947. It’s impossible to overstate the importance of these sessions. They include some of the earliest recordings of Monk compositions that would become standards, despite their angularity and technical difficulty: the strange, sideways chord progression of “Thelonious”; the bouncy and cheerful but melodically cockeyed “Well, You Needn’t”; the post-bop Bud Powell tribute “In Walked Bud”; and, of course, “‘Round Midnight,” which is now one of the most frequently recorded jazz compositions ever.
