Monk In France (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 533323) Riverside/OJC, 1961 — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...

CD

Live material recorded in France during the early 60s – when Thelonious Monk was working with his super genius stripped-down quartet that featured Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Ore on bass, and Frank Dunlop on drums! The tracks are a simple but elegant expression of Monk's ideals – laid out in longer versions than usual, with some great work by Rouse and Monk on the solos – already a near-perfect pairing here, ready to turn out some amazing 60s work for Columbia in years to come. Tracks include "Off Minor", "I Mean You", "Hackensack", and "Well You Needn't". CD includes bonus tracks "Body & Soul" and "Crepuscule With Nellie".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Columbia (France), 1964. Used
Beautiful Columbia work from Thelonious Monk – a record that has as much warmth and charm as it does visionary modernist moments! A number of the tunes are standards, not Monk compositions – and they're done here with a sense of depth and joy of exploration that's really wonderful ... CD
