Gearbox Records

Thelonious Monk - Mønk (LP)

$24.99

Black vinyl. The vinyl format is a genuine AAA release (analogue recording, analogue mix, analogue master) using the original source tapes, making it a true all analogue, audiophile primed release.

News of a previously unreleased recording by any of jazz’s 'holy trinity’ is a reason to get excited. Now two have come along in the space of a few months. For hot on the heel’s of Impulse’s hit Coltrane release comes this precious lost treasure from prime-era Monk, featuring his most critically acclaimed Quartet.

‘Mønk’ is a memorable live set (Copenhagen, Denmark) from 1963, featuring among other gems, glorious versions of soon-to-be classics ‘Bye-Ya’ and ‘Monk’s Dream’ that outdo even the famous studio versions. It's most definitely Monk in is pomp, heralding a year in which Monk would become one of only 4 jazz artists to ever appear on the front cover of TIME magazine. The original tapes, having been saved from a skip, have been faithfully restored, mastered and cut using Gearbox's legendary all-analogue process, making this a treat for audiophiles, enthusiasts, historians and music lovers of all shapes and sizes.
