Lost Thelonious Monk-Coltrane concert premiers on SIRIUS
This is pretty neat. Apparently a November 29, 1957 concert at Carnegie Hall had the Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane performing together, and was recorded by Voice of America for an overseas radio broadcast. Unfortunately, the tapes were poorly labeled, stored away and unheard until January 2005, when they were found at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. With little recorded documentation of Monk and Coltrane performances, these full-length high-quality recordings are the first and only musical record of one of the most legendary collaborations in jazz history.
The 51-minute recording of the concert will be released by Blue Note Records in conjunction with Thelonious Records on September 27, 2005.
SIRIUS’ Channel 72 will broadcast this landmark recording during The Blue Note Hour with Bruce Lundvall on Friday, September 9th at 6pm ET. T.S. Monk, son of the late Thelonious Monk, will be Lundvall’s special guest for this exclusive, world premiere broadcast.
“The discovery of this recording has been called ‘a Dead Sea Scroll of 20th century popular music,’ and now we can bring it to a new generation thanks to SIRIUS,� said Bruce Lundvall, president and CEO of EMI Jazz and Classics, which includes the Blue Note Record label.
