After the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, racial tensions across the country rose. Palo Alto, a largely white college town in California, wasn't immune. Danny Scher, a junior at the high school, had a dream to have Thelonious Monk perform and help bring about racial unity the community while raising funds for the International Committee. After many twists and turns, the triumphantly successful concert eventually happened. Now available on vinyl — includes 2 booklets and a poster.

Surprisingly Good

Reviewer: K. Moore
I did not have high hopes for this album due to its recording nature but I felt it was an important album to own. I’m surprised to say the sound quality is quit good. The entire package is put together well and was a bit of a history lesson for me since I was 4 years old in 68’. My copy is slightly warped, has a vinyl barb on one edge and came out of the paper inner sleeve absolutely covered in paper dust, but it plays well. Glad I own it.
