Volume 1 of the two volume Genius of Modern Music set comprises the historic first sessions Thelonious Monk recorded as a leader, on October 15 and 24 and November 21 of 1947. A cornerstone of any jazz collection, Volume 1 was originally released as a 10” and then reissued in 1956 as a 12” with previously unissued tracks.
