Wish you could experience the magic produced by Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane? Now you can with the newly discovered Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall!
“Every year sees a crop of newly found jazz gems, but rarely are listeners treated to anything as special as this 1957 concert recording of Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane, which was accidentally discovered in an unmarked box by a Library of Congress engineer early in 2005. Until now, fans could only dream of hearing these two immortals play together beyond the three studio tracks they left behind. But here they are, hitting their stride at an all-star benefit concert, basking in the chemistry they had developed in Monk's quartet during the preceding weeks at New York's Five Spot.” (Amazon.com)
