THELONIOUS MONK: Montreal Jazz Festival ‘65 (CD)

We are told .....

Thelonious Monk, live at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Palace Des Arts, Canada on 21st August 1965.

Following his move to Columbia Records in 1963 and his appearance on the cover of Time the following year, 1965 found Thelonious Monk at his commercial peak. This superb performance at Montreal Jazz Festival on 21st August 1965, finds him on remarkable form, though sadly his powers would dwindle thereafter, as mental illness made a recluse of him. This CBC radio broadcast features several of his most enduring compositions and it's presented here in excellent quality, together with background notes and images.
