RELEASE DATE // Sep 28, 2018
12" Album / Gearbox / Jazz
This is a never before released 41 minute session recorded live in Copenhagen in 1963 by the High Priest of Bebop, the great Thelonious Monk, with what is generally considered to be his most beloved quartet: John Ore on bass, Frankie Dunlop on drums and Charlie Rouse on tenor. There’s something about a live jazz recording, with just the right amount of applause and crowd ambiance, it reminds you that this was a singular event unfolding in real time with no producer and no overdubs; it lends a certain atmosphere and urgency that you just don’t get from a studio album.
Tracklist: 1. Bye-Ya
2. Nutty
3. I'm Getting Sentimental Over You
4. Body and Soul
5. Monk's Dream
