Destination Moon presents a reissue of Thelonious Monk's The Prophet, originally released in 1961. In 1954, during his first trip to Paris, the adventurous pianist and be-bop pioneer Thelonious Monk recorded a handful of songs for French radio, later issued as The Prophet. Unencumbered by bass, drums, or most other accompaniment, Monk gives you all we need in left-hand rhythms and right-hand melodies; "Round About Midnight" and "Reflections" show Monk's masterful command and there's a one-off take of "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes". Highlighting his capabilities in full, this is required listening for Monk fans and lovers of solo jazz piano.
