Thelonious Monk - Live In Paris 16 Avril 1961 (contient Inedits)

Pianist Thelonious Monk was one of the most in uential pianists in jazz history. From the Forties to the Sixties he was a central gure whose unique sense of composition and improvisation placed him in the avant-garde of the bebop and then hard bop movements in jazz. This set was recorded in Paris in April 1961, during Monk’s first triumphant European tour that led to many live recordings, and is made up of tapes from radio broadcasts, some of which have never been available on disc before now. Marc Benham, himself a great contemporary pianist, has put together a wonderful synthesis of this concert for the booklet included with the music.The Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period. Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
