Thelonious Monk - At Newport 1963
The legendary Thelonious Monk's appearance at the Newport festival in 1963 when the so-called "High Priest of Bop" brought one of his greatest quartets featuring master Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, Butch Warren on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. This is a great performance based on five of Monk's classic compositions: "Criss Cross", "Light Blue", "Nutty", "Blue Monk", and "Epistrophy". This is pure Monk's essence, don't miss it.
