Bop pianist Claude Williamson takes on the standards on this 1956 session, recorded in Los Angeles, which included Red Mitchell on bass and Mel Lewis on drums. The highlight of the album is the often-covered title track by Thelonious Monk; Williamson’s work at the keyboard seems to channel Monk on this song.

Claude Williamson was one of the better bebop-oriented pianists to be active during the 1950s. This trio set with bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Mel Lewis has been reissued on CD. With the exception of four-minute renditions of “Stella by Starlight” and Horace Silver’s “Hippy,” all of the numbers clock in around the three-minute mark. The repertoire (which includes such tunes as “Somebody Loves Me,” “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” “Just One of Those Things” and “The Song Is You”) is typical for the time period and Williamson brings to the music his own approach to playing bop. The set is quite enjoyable and, even if the program (which is around 39 minute) is a bit brief, it should appeal to straightahead jazz fans.
