Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane is a 1957 album by Thelonious Monk. It was recorded while Monk was engaged in a six-month stay at New York's legendary Five Spot in 1957 with his quartet of the time, which included Coltrane. While this album features this quartet on only three tracks - "Ruby, My Dear", "Trinkle, Tinkle" and "Nutty" - a more extensive collection can be found in "The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings." The remainder of the album is filled with outtakes from an octet session that joined Coltrane with three other horns, and an extended solo version of "Functional" by Monk.

Because of the historical significance of this album it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2007.[1]
