Description
On December 15, 1969, the great jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk performed at the historic Salle Pleyel concert hall in Paris. Monk was accompanied by two young musicians—bassist Nate Hygelund and drummer Paris Wright—plus his longtime tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse. Previously unreleased, the program includes such Monk classics as "I Mean You," "Straight No Chaser," and "Blue Monk," as well as a stunning solo piano performance of "I Love You Sweetheart of All My Dreams."

"Highly entertaining…. Songs like the playful 'Epistrophy' and the tender 'Ruby My Dear' remain fresh and inviting … encompassing old-school stride and angular reinventions of classic melodies."—Mother Jones

"Monk cascades through a melancholy 'Ruby My Dear' like nobody else, his hands punching and feathering through a lovely solo, and caroms beautifully through unaccompanied runs on 'Don’t Blame Me' and 'Crepuscule With Nellie.' In the unquestionable highlight … Philly Joe Jones sits in and puts on a clinic in a 10-minute 'Nutty'."—LA Times
