Monterose is the debut album by American saxophonist J. Monterose recorded in 1956 and released on the Blue Note label. Monterose's first session as a leader was a thoroughly enjoyable set of swinging, straight-ahead bop that revealed him as a saxophonist with a knack for powerful, robust leads in the vein of Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins.

Monterose grew up in Utica, New York, where his family moved a few months after his birth. He began formal clarinet studies at thirteen, but was largely self taught as a tenor saxophonist, which he took up at fifteen after hearing Glenn Miller band soloist Tex Beneke. His earliest stylistic influences were Coleman Hawkins and Chu Berry, but, as he told critic Leonard Fe read more. Monterose Frank Anthony Peter Vincent Monterose, Jr. Detroit, Michigan, January 19, 1927 September 16, 1993, , was an American jazz tenor and occasional soprano saxophonist. The talented but underrated tenor saxophonist J. Monterose has a rare opportunity to stretch out in a quartet with pianist Tommy Flanagan who would become a longtime friend, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Pete La Roca. whose recording sessions were few and far between during his career, is in top form on five of his offbeat yet logical originals and two standard ballads, sometimes showing a Sonny Rollins influence but mostly sounding fairly distinctive.

Album: The Message, 2013. A beautiful session cut by the obscure tenor player J. Monterose - a musician who never made it big by jazz standards, but who was always one of the most respected players amongst his jazz contemporaries. This rare session was originally cut for the short lived Jaro label, and on vinyl, it sells for well over 100 if we ever see it The session's got Monterose's unique tenor in a setting with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Pete LaRoca. Monterose: Straight Ahead. Monterose Format: Audio CD. Also released as THE MESSAGE. But if I may correct the other reviewer I Rememer Clifford is much the better ballad and the best track on the CD, unless you are ardent J. Strangely enough Monterose's playing much improved for his encounter with Jackie McLean on Charles Mingus's PITHECANTHROPUS ERECTUS although Mal Waldron seperates them on the 2 longer tracks. Take heed of A Foggy Day with all those sound effects. Good album otherwise. Read more
