12/20/15 O&A NYC Sunday Afternoon Jazz Concert: Thelonious Monk- Live in Norway and Denmark 1966



Thelonious Monk Quartet featuring Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), Larry Gales (double bass) and Ben Riley (drums) play two sets running about half an hour each, filmed in black-and-white in TV studios without an audience. The first set was done in Norway in 1966, the other in Denmark the same year. 

Thelonious Monk- Live in Norway & Denmark ’66

Because of the double sessions we get two versions of Lulu’s Back In Town (but they are equally interesting). Featured also are Blue Monk, Don’t Blame Me (piano only on this one), Epistrophy and Round Midnight
