Thelonius Monk In Italy - 1961 (1991)

Recorded in 1961 during Monk's first European tour, this release features eight tracks of superior musicianship with a crack rhythm section of John Ore (bass) and Frankie Dunlop (drums); smooth, dextrous playing from tenor saxman Charlie Rouse (who would remain with Monk for the next ten years) and the man himself. Monk's playing, from "Jackie-ing" to "San Francisco Holiday" to his beautifully conversational solo showcase in "Body and Soul," is inventive, seductive and vertigo-inducing; making great leaps in melodic logic, unwinding phrasing and chord patterns until they kick, gleam and glimmer.
Whoever wrote the liner notes and called Monk's music, by way of compliment, "easy to understand," obviously wasn't thinking of the challenging, at-odds contrapuntal lines of "Epistrophy." He also wasn't trying to map Monk's chord clusters or keep up with the breakneck athleticism of "Rhythm-a-ning," where, over a driving, climbing bass line, Monk plays a circular, collage-style solo, interjecting the theme to "Underground." While Monk's music is certainly accessible, part of what makes it such a treasure is the complex intelligence with which it is composed.

Thelonius Monk In Italy - 1961 (1991)

Recorded live at Teatro Lirico, Milan, Italy on April 21, 1961. Originally released on Riverside (9443). Includes original liner notes by Bob Reisner.

Review: This 1961 Riverside release seems to be one of those Monk recordings that "flew under the radar" and wasn't detected. This is classic live Monk with his quartet. This set features Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone (who will become a permanent member of Monk's quartet), John Ore on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. This is a very tight knit group. Both Dunlop and Ore are responsive to Monk's idiosyncratic playing and the interplay between Rouse and Monk is really starting to develop. This partnership will develop into one of the great jazz pairings for many years to follow.

There are some great versions of "Epistrophy," "Straight, No Chaser," and "Body And Soul," but as with any Monk recording, there are no bad tracks to be found here. This is incredible music that only Monk can produce.
