Description

The first version of the classic Monk Quartet formula of which tenorist Charlie Rouse was the essential ingredient came into being at the time of Monk's now legendary Town Hall concert in New York in February 1959. Sam Jones and Art Taylor were the rhythm players in the orchestral segment of the event and together with Rouse and Monk performed three Quartet numbers. Monk's probing playing sets the mood for some smoothly flowing performances, moving from slow to medium pace and containing all the classic Monk ingredients. Personnel: Thelonious Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor saxophone), Butch Warren (bass), Frankie Dunlop (drums).
