Thelonious Monk - Live in '66 (2006)
22 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is pianist Thelonious Monk's quartet featuring Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), Larry Gales (double bass) and Ben Riley (drums). They 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. Hence 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'. I've been a fan of Monk's music for more than half a century and, although this bassist and drummer would not have been my first choice, it is fascinating to watch the great man's keyboard style and peculiar body-language in close-up.
