Columbia/Legacy
Allmusic:
This CD reissue is one of the most rewarding Bud Powell recordings to come from his period in France. Powell (along with bassist Pierre Michelot and drummer Kenny Clarke) explores four of Thelonious Monk's tunes, Earl Bostic's "No Name Blues" and the standard "There Will Never Be Another You" but it is the final two numbers ("I Ain't Foolin'" and "Squatty") which really find the bop master at his most spirited and swinging. This very rewarding CD releases for the first time the alternate take (a faster rendition without a clear melody) of "Squatty," a song that (based on its original version) deserves to be revived. One oddity: the applause heard throughout this release was added on later because this was actually a studio album.

Tracks:
All songs were written by Thelonious Monk, except where noted.
01. "Off Minor" – 5:20
02. "There Will Never Be Another You" (Harry Warren, Mack Gordon) – 4:17
03. "Ruby, My Dear" – 5:46
04. "No Name Blues" (Earl Bostic) – 6:38
05. "Thelonious" – 3:46
06. "Monk's Mood" – 7:06
07. "I Ain't Fooling" (Charles Albertine) – 3:19
08. "Squatty" (Brian Fahey) – 5:48
09. "Squatty" [unissued alternate] (Fahey) – 5:04 (not on original LP)
