Limited Edition - 1000 Copies In U.S.!
45rpm 7" Vinyl Single!

Limited to just 1000 copies in the US, this is an unquestionable treasure. From Gearbox Records' forthcoming album of previously unreleased, prime-era Monk comes this beautifully presented 7" single.

To many people this is the definitive Thelonious Monk Quartet line up, recorded at their peak, for a Danish radio broadcast in 1963. Charlie Rouse (sax) Frankie Dunlop (Drums) and John Ore (Bass) deliver a truly outstanding version of Nutty.

Ore and Dunlop really dig in and swing. Simultaneously driving and laid back, Monk's masterful use of space and melody in Charlie Rouses solo is a clear demonstration as to why Monk is considered by many to be the the best accompanist the jazz world has ever known.

Monk has a lightness of touch in this recording that isn't often heard. Strong themes are interspersed with florid lines and embellishments. The result is an awe-inspiring take that's dripping with cool.
