Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane at Carnegie
John Coltrane’s tenure with Thelonious Monk’s quartet is considered one of the pivotal pairings in jazz history. Few recordings of this legendary lineup exist—in fact, this is the first professionally recorded full-length album—so the discovery of these tapes in the Library of Congress in January 2005 set champagne corks popping among jazz collectors everywhere. Here is the long-awaited result: Monk’s Mood; Eviden ce; Crepuscule with Nellie; Nutty; Epistrophy; Bye-Ya; Sweet & Lovely; Blue Monk, and a reprise of Epistrophy. Gotta have it!
