Brilliant Corners is a studio album by American jazz musician Thelonious Monk. It was his third album for Riverside Records, and the first, for this label, to include his own compositions. The complex title track required over a dozen takes in the studio. The album was recorded in three sessions in late 1956 with two different quintets.

Although Brilliant Corners is Thelonious Monk's third disc for Riverside, it's the first on the label to weigh in with such heavy original material. Enthusiasts who become jaded to the idiosyncratic nature of Monk's playing or his practically arithmetical chord progressions should occasionally revisit Brilliant Corners. There is an inescapable freshness and vitality saturated into every measure of every song. The passage of time makes it all the more difficult to imagine any other musicians bearing the capacity to support Monk with such ironic precision

Here, John Fordham examines the brilliant corners of Thelonious Monk. There are more than 3m new pages for you to explore as well as 600,000-plus artists' pages – so if, for example, you prefer your jazz to come in the shape of, er, The Shape of Jazz to Come, or think a better choice is John Coltrane's A Love Supreme, then find their albums and get to work.

Thelonious Monk’s association with Riverside Records proved to be a productive and creative period in his career. Between 1955 and 1961 Monk participated in 30 recording sessions for Riverside and released 14 studio and live albums. Among them you can find one of 1950s jazz milestones, his collaboration with John Coltrane recorded at the Five Spot in 1958. Brilliant Corners is likely the album that truly started this journey for both musician and producer. If you enjoyed reading this article, you may also like these: Lonely Woman, by Ornette Coleman.
