    At Carnegie Hall

    This never-before-heard jazz classic documents one of the most historically important working bands in all of Jazz history, a band that was both short-lived and, until now, thought to be frustratingly under-recorded. The concert, which took place at the famed New York hall on November 29, 1957, was preserved on newly-discovered tapes made by Voice of America for a later radio broadcast that were located at the Library of Congress in Washington DC in 2005.

    Monk's Music


    Special Vinyl Reissue


    This Is One Of Monk's Pivotal Recordings And Is An Essential Addition To All Jazz Collections.


    Monk's Music is often cited as one of the focal points of Thelonious Monk's six-year affiliation (1955-1961) with the Riverside label. Although the original
    disc clocked in at slightly over 30 minutes, packed into that half hour are not only the introduction of a few of Monk's signature compositions, but also
    some amazing interactions from the assembled ensemble. Joining Thelonious Monk (piano) during these two recording sessions are Ray Copeland
    (trumpet), Gigi Gryce (alto sax), Coleman Hawkins (tenor sax), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Wilbur Ware (bass), and Art Blakey (drums).
    This special vinyl re-issue of Monk's classic album is not to be missed!


    Thelonious Monk: the legendary jazz pianist and composer, considered one of the giants of American music.

    Monk's Dream

    Import


    Monk's Dream is the Columbia Records debut release featuring the Thelonious Monk Quartet: Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums). Jazz scholars and enthusiasts alike also heralded this combo as the best Monk had been involved with for several years. Although he would perform and record supported by various other musicians, the tight -- almost telepathic -- dimensions that these four shared has rarely been equalled in any genre... Monk's Dream is recommended, with something for every degree of Monk enthusiast.

    Misterioso

    1958's Misterioso was culled from the same 1958 Five Spot Cafe performances that produced Thelonious In Action and features the same quartet of Monk (piano), Johnny Griffin (tenor sax), Roy Haynes (drums) and Ahmed Abdul-Malik (bass). The swinging 6-song set consists of of all Monk arranged originals, with the exception being Just a Gigalo, which he performs unaccompanied here. Griffin proves to be the perfect foil for Monk's unorthodox genius throughout, particularly on the 10-minute plus title track treasure and the multi-layered Let's Cool One.

    Straight No Chaser

    Import

    A few years after recording Straight, No Chaser, Thelonious Monk disappeared from the public eye. But as the years passed, more people became aware of the seminal role he played in the development in jazz as both pianist and composer, creating a standard of excellence that many musicians after him aspire to.


    Produced by Teo Macero, who was also responsible for legendary albums such as Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue and Dave Brubeck's Time Out!, Monk's Straight, No Chaser is a classic in its own right. It's the last album the talented pianist and composer recorded with his quartet consisting of Larry Gales on bass, Ben Riley on drums and his musical soul mate Charlie Rouse on tenor sax. It includes a light yet mature version of one of his standards; Straight, No Chaser is one idea played again and again, each time in a different part of the measure and with a different ending, and highlights some stellar action between Monk and Rouse.

    Brilliant Corners

    Import


    Two superb piano trio albums of covers had set the stage for Monk the composer to re-emerge with horns, and the pianist responded with BRILLIANT CORNERS, one of his greatest recordings, featuring three classic new tunes and two formidable studio bands. The Sonny Rollins featured on BRILLIANT CORNERS is a far more imposing presence than the young acolyte of previous Monk sessions--just witness the title tune. With its multiple themes, quirky intervallic leaps, idiomatic rhythmic changes and tricky transitions in tempo, it is one of Monk's masterpieces--a miniature symphony. So daunting were its technical challenges, that the final ending was edited on from another take. Rollins begins his solo with swaggering composure, boldly paraphrasing Monk's vinegary intervals and trademark trills, before navigating the swift rapids of the double-time chorus with deft syncopations. Monk plies dissonance upon dissonance in his first chorus, playing rhythmic tag with Max Roach on the out chorus. Ernie Henry's slip-sliding bluesiness is followed by a brilliant rhythmic edifice from Roach, who maintains melodic coherence at a drowsy tempo, then explodes into the final chorus.Elsewhere, Ba-Lue Bolivar Ba-Lues-Are is a soulful, easygoing blues, and Monk's solo is a compendium of pithy rhythmic devices, bent notes and calculated melodic abstractions, played with enormous relaxation and swing. He concludes with heckling big-band figures that form the basis for Rollins' expressive rhythmic testimonies. Monk employs the bell-like timbre of a celeste to stunning effect on Pannonica, one of his loveliest melodies and improvisations. And in closing, Bemsha Swing is a hard-swinging, conversational performance, with fine contributions from trumpeter Clark Terry, bassist Paul Chambers and Roach on drums and timpani.

    Thelonious Monk and his quartet spent a good chunk of 1961 touring Europe including this date, recorded at Olympia in Paris on April 18th of that year. Featuring his long-time quartet saxophonist Charlie Rouse - whose vibrant tone and rhythmic sense are on display here - the group churns through a small handful of Monk classics. A fine live recording from one of the most celebrated jazz quartets of all time, reissued on LP by Doxy.

    Hamburg Recordings 1967

    The Monks - a strange, rare group with a story that sounds like a drunk friend's generous
    hyperbole. A group of American G.I.s stationed in Germany on the precipice of Western
    cultural revolution starts playing music loosely connected to the rock n' roll craze,
    contrastingly incorporating a critical and often offensive avant-garde edge. Nothing
    was off limits - screeching vocals, dark aesthetics, staccato-strummed banjo, sardonic
    lyricism, critiques of the Vietnam War and full monk costuming down to the tonsure.
    When viewed on the whole, it seems like an art school student's senior thesis on what
    the craze means and its future possibilities. Due in large part to original Polydor vinyl
    collectability and years in the word-of-mouth hype machine, their legend and cult status
    has steadily blossomed since their last shows in 1967.


    Fast forward to 2017, the crew at Third Man, already huge fans, are presented with an
    honest-to-God treasure trove of original Monks photos, newspaper clippings, business
    cards, letterhead, contracts, postcards and, yes, analog tapes, containing trailblazing,
    wild compositions completely unheard by public ears.


    "I'm Watching You" would have been recorded on February 28th, 1967 at the same
    sessions that would produce the Monks' final single "Love Can Tame the Wild" b/w "He
    Went Down to the Sea." The remaining four songs were recorded after hours in the Top
    Ten Club later that year, just prior to the break-up of the band.


    These songs have been unreleased for 50 years and are quite possibly the last music left
    to be heard by this legendary band.

    Monk's Dream

    Import

    Monk's Dream is the first album jazz musician Thelonious Monk released on Columbia Records. It was recorded in 4 days in autumn 1962 and issued a year later. The Thelonious Monk Quartet consisted of Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums). Jazz scholars and enthusiasts alike also heralded this combo as the best Monk had been involved with for several years. Although he would perform and record supported by various other musicians, the tight dimensions that these four shared has rarely been equaled in any genre.


    On tracks such as Five Spot Blues and Bolivar Blues, Rouse and Dunlop demonstrate their uncanny abilities by squeezing in well-placed instrumental fills, while never getting hit by the unpredictable rhythmic frisbees being tossed about by Monk. Augmenting the six quartet recordings are two solo sides: Just a Gigolo and Body and Soul. Most notable about Monk's solo work is how much he retained the same extreme level of intuition throughout the nearly two decades that separate these recordings from his initial renderings in the late '40s.

    Something In Blue (Pure Pleasure)

    Alan Bates took Thelonious Monk into the studio for his first trio recording in fifteen years with his old sidekick Art Blakey. It has been said often enough that Blakey is the ideal drummer for Monk, and one has only to hear them together again after all this time to realize the truth of the statement. If Blakey at times seems to push the pianist almost too hard, that is in fact the nature of their musical relationship. And, throughout the session, Blakey appeared to be vying with the producer in alternately cajoling and coercing Monk into fulfilling various requests from the small invited audience.



    Musicians:



    • Thelonious Monk (piano)

    • Al McKibbon (bass)

    • Art Blakey (drums)




    Recording: November 1971 at Chappell Studios, London, by John Timperley

    Production: Alan Bates



    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    New York Is Now!


    Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    Recorded during the same session that resulted in the Love Call album (in late April and early May of 1968), New York Is Now is one of the true curiosity pieces in Ornette's catalog. With a rhythm section comprised of ex-Coltrane sidemen Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones as well as tenorist Dewey Redman, Ornette is, in some sense, at odds with himself here. This particular rhythm section is a lot more modally than harmonically propelled -- especially Jones, who sounds here like he doesn't know what to do with himself in the restrictive tempos -- and creates a complex set of issues for Coleman and Redman to contend with. That said, on The Garden of Souls, which opens the album, Coleman makes the most of this sprightly, energetic rhythm team and moves through quotations of Moon River, Danny Boy, and even Paul Muriat's Love Is Blue during his solo, before shifting the harmonics around and anchoring them somewhere between E flat 7 and E major. On Broadway Blues, Coleman uses Monk liberally in his melodic conception, and he and Redman have a go at turning a seven-note vamp into all sorts of knotty material for soloing -- and you can almost feel Jones smile as the tempo reaches triple time as the saxophonists race each other through it. And while this date is of only marginal interest on some level (for true hardcore Ornette-ophiles), it is pleasant and amusing if not amazing -- with the exception of For a Commercial, which features Ornette's fine violin playing above the rest of the band in the mix (what a downer). ~ Thom Jurek

    Brilliant Corners

    Few composers or improvisers can match the originality of pianist Thelonious Monk. Quirky yet rigorously logical, Monk's playful but always purposeful choice of skewed melodies and interrupted rhythm patterns gave the bebop movement, and jazz in total, a new sound that was totally modern. Although he created a surprisingly limited body of compositions, his impact on the vocabulary and canon of jazz is second to none, including such prolific giants as Duke Ellington. Brilliant Corners is a triumph of both performance and conception: the two small-group sessions, anchored by Monk, drummer Max Roach, and the bass work of either Oscar Pettiford or Paul Chambers, feature superb front-line performances by saxophonists Sonny Rollins and the tragically under-recorded Ernie Henry, as well as trumpeter Clark Terry. The title track, which centers the collection, is one of Monk's most unconventional pieces, skirting whole-tone, chromatic and Lydian scales; a version of Pannonica finds Monk doubling on celeste, while the band stretches out on Bemsha Swing and the blues Ba-lue Bolivar Ba-lues-are. - Fred Goodman

    It's Monk's Time (Speakers Corner)

    With its three compositions by Thelonious Monk, one might call this LP from 1964 "3 Standards and 3 Monks". The 'High Priest' of bebop had reached a further pinnacle in his career and performed with his fantastic, skilful and well-rehearsed quartet at numerous festivals and concerts. As if in a dream, the musicians penetrate the apparently simple yet rhythmically complicated themes, interrupted again and again by Monk's solo escapades on the piano. On the stage, Monk often stood up and jigged around the piano like a lumbering dancing bear, with one of his distinctive hats on his head; he plonks down on the piano stool after the Charlie Rouse solo; his enormous feet tap back and forth to the beat; he constantly fiddles with the ring on his finger; and he creates the most wonderful improvisations ever heard with his 'false' fingering.


    Calling all jazz fans: Listen to Thelonious Monk, and you will have a ball - most especially if you put this super disc with the promising title "It's Monks Time" on your turntable!

    The Unique Thelonious Monk

    Thelonious Monk's second album for Riverside continued the label's initial plant to broaden his audience by the use of recognizable standard tunes instead of his somewhat frightening originals. Thelonious's uncompromising performances, major-league support from Art Blakey and Oscar Pettiford, and strong material all helped turn this concept into lastingly superior jazz. Particularly notable are his sharp thrusts of humor on such well-worn pieces as Honeysuckle Rose and Tea for Two. The album's impact was strengthened by one of the most unique covers ever devised, Riverside actually went so far as to print quantities of almost postage-sized Monk stamps.

    Solo Monk


    1964 Album True To Its Title: Nothing But Monk, His Fingers, And The Piano


    Perhaps The Solo Piano Record To Have By Monk" - Thom Jurek / Allmusic


    Mastered From Original Master Tapes By Bernie Grundmand


    Pressed On 180gram Audiophile-grade Vinyl At Pallas In Germany


    Monk's 1946 solo affair ranks among the pioneering
    pianist's most introspective, cerebral, and emotional
    outings. His trademark angularity informs a majority of
    the pieces, yet so does grand classicism and melodic
    rapture. Monk's readings of the originals and standards
    practically stand the tunes on their collective ears.
    Solo Monk is simply amazing. And now, mastered from
    the original master tapes, this 180gram LP brings all
    the music closer, and into more transparent form, than
    ever before.

    Solo Monk

    Import

    Recorded in late 1964 and produced by Teo Macero, Solo Monk is the 8th album Thelonious Monk released for Columbia Records. As the title implies, this album consists purely of Monk's solo piano playing. He handles classic Pop standards like Dinah and Sweet And Lovely, but beautifully executes his own compositions like the bluesy North Of The Sunset, Ruby, My Dear and Monk's Point. If there is any album to own by Thelonious Monk, Solo Monk is clearly it.
