An unreleased gem from Monk's most critically acclaimed lineup!
Recorded live in Copenhagen in 1963 at the peak of Monk's career
Hot on the heels of Impulse's recent unearthed Coltrane number one hit album comes another beauty from jazz's "holy trinity." This is a previously unreleased, precious lost treasure from Monk's most critically acclaimed line-up; Charlie Rouse on saxophone, John Ore on double bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. Tracks include renditions of the famous "Nutty" and "Bye-Ya." Monk composed more than sixty-odd pieces which are still circulating in the jazz repertoire, more than any other jazz composer.
Recorded live in Copenhagen in 1963 at the peak of Monk's career. A year later he was featured on the cover of TIME magazine, one of only four jazz artists ever to be so honored.
The vinyl format is a genuine AAA release (analogue recording, analogue mix, analogue master) using the original source tapes, making it a true all analogue, audiophile primed release. Cut in-house with Gearbox's 1967 Haeco Scully lathe, the exact same lathe as Blue Note used back in the day!
