Thelonious Monk – Reflections (1954)

Reflections is from Solo 1954  by Thelonious Monk, recorded in Paris on June 7, 1954.

The pensive nature of “Reflections” resonates with a particular potency masked by the intrusive nature of additional instrumentation. Surely if ever Monk wrote a tune that worked most effectively as a piano solo, it is “Reflections.” And that is a sentiment that could actually extend to the whole (and remainder) of Solo 1954 as well.
