Background: Originally released in 1962, Monk’s Dream was Monk’s first album for Columbia, and remains one of his best-known works. gave Monk’s Dream a 5 star review:

Monk’s Dream is the Columbia Records debut release featuring the Thelonious Monk Quartet: Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums). Jazz scholars and enthusiasts alike also heralded this combo as the best Monk had been involved with for several years. Although he would perform and record supported by various other musicians, the tight — almost telepathic — dimensions that these four shared has rarely been equalled in any genre. … Monk’s Dream is recommended, with something for every degree of Monk enthusiast.
