Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins is an album by jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk and saxophonist Sonny Rollins released in 1954 on the Prestige label, catalogue 7075. The album is culled from the results of three recording sessions over a span of close to twelve months featuring different personnel.

Sonny Rollins Quartet Featuring Thelonious Monk. Bass – Tommy PotterDrums – Arthur Taylor Written-By – Caesar, Youmans. Tenor Saxophone – Sonny Rollins (tracks: A1, A2, B2). Written-By – Thelonious Monk (tracks: A3 to B2). Notes. Reissue in new cover. Disk is repress of Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins - Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins with old catalog number scratched out. Deep groove labels. A1 & A2 recorded October 25, 1954 A3 & B1 recorded September 22, 1954 B2 recorded at WOR Studios (as mentioned in the liner notes), November 13, 1953.

The five tunes included on Work are derived from three separate sessions held between November of 1953 and September of the following year. As is often the case, this likewise means that there are three distinct groups of musicians featured. Rollins is able to entwine a sinuous lead throughout Monk's contrasting chord counterpoint. Enthusiasts seeking additional tracks from these and the remainder of Monk's sessions during his brief residency with Prestige should consider the suitably titled four-CD Complete Prestige Recordings compilation.

It was the final Monk release on the label before he moved to a contract with Riverside Records. The track "Friday the 13th" was recorded in November 1953 with a quintet of Monk, Rollins, Julius Watkins, Percy Heath, and Willie Jones; the September 1954 recordings are of a trio with Monk, Heath, and Art Blakey; and the October 1954 session Monk and Rollins again with bassist Tommy Potter and drummer Art Taylor. Three of the recordings on this 12" LP originally appeared in 1954 on 10" LPs: Thelonious Monk Quintet Blows For LP (Prestige PRLP 166),Thelonious Monk Plays (Prestige PRLP 189) and Sonny Rollins and Thelonious Monk Quartet (Prestige PRLP 190).

inform
i seem to have this release but with a blue label. same cover.
Ndav
If it is a dark blue label with the Prestige trident on the right side of the label, it is indeed a US pressing from sometime between 1964-71
Rose Of Winds
Same here---must be a 60's American pressing.
