Vinyl Reissue Series Commemorates 65th Anniversary of Prestige Records and 90th Birthday of Legendary Engineer Rudy Van Gelder!

Thelonious Monk In Italy is a live album by American jazz pianist Thelonious Monk featuring tracks recorded in Italy in 1961 and released on the Riverside label in 1963. 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 that set him apart from his peers as an individualistic player capable of consistently expressive, stylistic and sophisticated performances.
