Double 180 gram clear audiophile vinyl LP pressing. As Scott Yanow puts it in his five-star review for AllMusic, "This is one of pianist-composer Thelonious Monk's greatest recordings and represents a high point in his career... essential for all jazz collections." Big Band and Quartet in Concert, Monk's fifth album for Columbia records, was recorded live at Lincoln Center, Philharmonic Hall in New York City on December 30, 1963. The album is coming back to vinyl for the first time in over two decades with this double LP 180 gram reissue, which was mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas in Germany for a true audiophile experience.
