Recording and music

The album was recorded at Barigozzi Studio, Milan, on April 18–19, 1989.[4] All of the eleven pieces were composed by Thelonious Monk,[1] and played as solo soprano saxophone performances by Steve Lacy.[2]

Releases and reception

More Monk was released by Soul Note in 1991.[4] The Penguin Guide to Jazz suggested that the album was more accessible than Only Monk, an earlier solo Lacy album of Monk compositions, and most of the material was more commonly played.[2] More Monk was also released in 2011 as part of the 6-CD Solos Duos Trios: The Complete Remastered Recordings on Soul Note.[4]
