This all I found:
When Thelonious Monk first signed on with Prestige Records in 1952,  
he chose a trio setting for his initial recording date. It consisted  
of a renowned bassist from Barbados named Gary Mapp, with Art Blakey  
on drums. Mapp worked as Transit Policeman by day, and was known as  
"The Hip Cop." Gary Mapp used to lead his own band at Tony's Club  
Grandean, located in Brooklyn at Grand and Dean Avenues. Mapp also  
played in bands around New York with such well known jazz giants as  
Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Kenny Dorham and others.

Best,

Tom
