  13. This set is a great accomplishment. The arrangements are tight and fresh. They don't wander or digress. The group is "true" to the original recordings without aping Monk's style. Scott Robinson is a marvelous presence on several instruments (one at a time). And you can't do better than Rufus Reid and Billy Drummond. I especially get a kick from hearing the Monk tunes that hardly anyone has ever recorded.
