Hot on the heels of Impulse's recent unearthed Coltrane No. 1 hit album comes another beauty from jazz's ‘holy trinity'. Recorded live in Copenhagen in 1963 at the peak of his trailblazing career, this historical offering is a previously unreleased, precious lost treasure from Thelonious Monk's most critically acclaimed line-up; Charlie Rouse on saxophone, John Ore on double bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. The essential five-track set includes renditions of the famous "Nutty" and "Bye-Ya" plus "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," "Body and Soul" and "Monk's Dream." A year later Monk was featured on the cover of Time magazine, one of only four jazz artists ever to do so. AAA release (analogue recording, analogue mix, analogue master) using the original source tapes. Cut in-house with Gearbox's 1967 Haeco Scully lathe, the exact same lathe set-up as Blue Note used back in the day. Packaged in a heavy-weight tip-on sleeve.
