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. Known as the “High Priest of Bebop” - Without a widely agreed must-have Monk release, could this fill the void as the Monk everyone should own? Tracks include renditions of the famous “Nutty” and “Bye-Ya.” Monk composed over 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 to feature on the cover of TIME magazine, one of only for 4 Jazz artists ever to do so. - 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.
