7"

      From the forthcoming, previously unreleased Monk LP (due September) Gearbox present a genuine collector’s item, limited to 2000 worldwide, of which just 700 for the UK.

      To many people this is the definitive Thelonious Monk Quartet line up, recorded at their peak, for a Danish radio broadcast in 1963. Charlie Rouse (sax) Frankie Dunlop (Drums) and John Ore (Bass) deliver a truly outstanding version of ‘Nutty’. Ore and Dunlop really dig in and swing. Simultaneously driving and laid back, Monk's masterful use of space and melody in Charlie Rouse’s solo is a clear demonstration as to why Monk is considered by many to be the the best accompanist the jazz world has ever known.

      Monk has a lightness of touch in this recording that isn’t often heard. Strong themes are interspersed with florid lines and embellishments. The result is an awe-inspiring take that’s dripping with cool.
