Live Monk
2 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great companion piece to the Eastwood documentary "Straight No Chaser." Two clips from concert performances in Norway and Denmark during Monk's 1966 tour offer a glimpse of what Thelonious Monk was up to in the 60s. Charlie Rouse is on Saxophone, Larry Gales on Bass, and Ben Riley on drums. The first set is "Lulu's Back in Town," followed by "Blue Monk" and "'Round Midnight." The second set is a different version of "Lulu's Back in Town" -- a nice way to glimpse what live jazz was all about -- followed this time by "Don't Blame Me" and "Epistrophy." It's clear that Monk is engaged throughout with these musicians. Like any live jazz, some moments are better than others, but the DVD is work serious viewing by anyone who wants to get a better understanding of Monk's music. It's shot in black and white and has few cinematic flashes, a few close ups, some interesting camera angles, but for the most part it's pretty straightforward filmed performance, a documentary of some historic moments in jazz.
