A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.

Background: Released in 1967, Straight, No Chaser, was the sixth album Thelonious Monk recorded for Columbia Records.

The title track has since become a Jazz standard. gave Straight, No Chaser a 4 star review:

This is the sixth studio album cut by Thelonious Monk under the production/direction of Teo Macero for Columbia and as such should not be confused with the original motion picture soundtrack to the 1988 film of the same name. The band featured here includes: Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), Ben Riley (drums), and Larry Gales (bass). This would be the final quartet Monk would assemble to record with in the studio.
