On June 9, Craft Recordings, a new imprint of Concord Music Group, will reissue Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane’s Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings as a deluxe edition box set of three 180-gram vinyl LPs, pressed at RTI from lacquers cut by George Horn. The box set also features new artwork, rare photos and an essay by Orrin Keepnews, who produced the original sessions—the only studio recordings Monk and Coltrane made together.

Remastered from the original analog sources, the recordings will also be released in hi-resolution digital formats.
