Information on Menkaure is lacking, Traditional legend provides that Menkaure’s reign was both benevolent and prosperous. Herodotus who is the primary source of information on Menkaure, tells about Menkaure:

Not long before this photo was taken, Coltrane had rejoined Davis’ group after a sojourn away with Thelonious Monk.
