Thelonious Monk in Italyby Thelonious Monk
Pianist/composer Thelonious Monk's final Riverside recording before signing with Columbia was cut during a concert in Italy, part of an extensive European tour that also resulted in recordings from Paris three days earlier. All eight of the songs (which include "Straight, No Chaser," "Bemsha Swing," and "Rhythm-A-Ning") had been recorded in more definitive fashion earlier, but Monk and his tenor, Charlie Rouse, sound fine.
