The Lost Recordings

Monk and Trane, y'all!

The lost recordings of Monk and Trane are here.
Ever since they were found in February, we kept hearing about these tapes that were packed up in an old box at the Library of Congress. The recordings are of a concert held at Carnegie Hall in 1957 of the Thelonius Monk Quartet with John Coltrane (along with Ahmed Abdul-Malik and Shadow Wilson). The show was a benefit for the Morningside Heights Community Centerin Harlem. Now this execellent record is available to the public. I've been listening to my copy non-stop, it really is a beautiful piece of work. Pick it up when it drops on 26 Sept and stop by tomorrow to check my article on this wonderful discovery.

That's pretty amazing, I might have to go pick it up.

Really makes you wonder how much great music we missed, from back in the day, that wasn't recorded. From live shows at clubs, to just jam sessions.

I bet some of the greatest music ever never was recorded. Sad, but I'm glad we get this.

I've been waiting since I heard.

I need that set... I have an empty weekend that would be the perfect backdrop for that to be the soundtrack.
