Monk in Tokyo (live)
Thelonious Monk – piano
Charlie Rouse - tenor saxophone
Butch Warren – bass
Frankie Dunlop – drums

On Columbia. I like this band, especially the rhythm section.  Rouse plays well, and the recorded quality is very good.

Yes, Tharaud was kind of in charge of the whole series (he’s the main pianist as well obviously). Here’s a link if you’re interested:

I think from Monk's stand point, his years at Columbia were the best, but not necessarily for band performances.  Columbia paid for a week of rehearsals and recording prior to each session, and generally put more money into promoting the recordings, as well as paying a higher rate to side men. 

Monk kept recycling the same material throughout his career and each band had its own take.  I hear people say they don't like Charlie Rouse, but I consider him the horn player who knew Monk's music the best since he played with him so many years.  I didn't think Johnny Griffin was a good match with Monk, and the Coltrane sides were great, but totally unique.  I would have liked to have more of Monk with Sonny Rollins.

As has been pointed out, there are great records on each label
