Description

In Italy on LP

2014 vinyl LP pressing reissue featuring standout renditions of "Straight, No Chaser," "Bemsha Swing," and "Rhythm-A-Ning," in Italy captures pianist/composer Thelonious Monk flexing his trademark idiosyncratic chops on what would be his final recording for the Riverside label. Cut live in concert while on an extensive European tour, this set from 1961 serves as a final reminder of the legendary catalog Monk built while recording for Riverside and hinted at the genius yet to be recorded. Accompanied by tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse, bassist John Ore, and drummer Frankie Dunlop, Monk shines here, turning in more of the style the set him apart from his peers as an individualistic player capable of consistently expressive, stylistic and sophisticated performances.
