1961 Album Reissued on Vinyl!

Monk in France is an album by jazz pianist Thelonious Monk, originally recorded on April 18, 1961. Monk toured Europe in 1961 with drummer Frankie Dunlop, bassist John Ore and tenor sax player Charlie Rouse, producing a series of live albums along the way including "Monk in France."

Thelonious Monk was an American jazz pianist and composer. Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including "'Round Midnight," "Blue Monk," "Ruby, My Dear," "In Walked Bud," and "Well, You Needn't." Monk is the second-most recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed more than 1,000 pieces, whereas Monk wrote about 70.

His compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists, and are consistent with Monk's unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of silences and hesitations.

Thelonious Monk, piano
John Ore, bass
Charlie Rouse, tenor saxophone
Frankie Dunlop, drums
