Recorded live at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Monterey, California on September 21 & 22, 1963. Includes liner notes by Mark Gardner. Thelonious Monk's appearance at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival was a turning point of sorts in his career, and from that point on he was a major draw at various jazz festivals. Monk with his quartet appeared for two nights at the Monterey Jazz festival in September of 1963. VOLUME ONE is culled from both of those nights and features three of his originals along with "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" (which marvelously shows Monk's ability to take a gorgeous and familiar melody and make it completely his own). After the '50s Monk's writing was slowing down and he was revisiting his increasingly praised work from the previous two decades. The quartet he kept throughout '60s are perfectly meshed with that work, playing their instruments as if they're each an extension of Monk's heart and mind. Editorial reviews ...The sound is as alive as the music...this is MFSL's real engineering accomplishment...Jone Ore and Frank Dunlop's ability to spur on Monk and Rouse is made very clear. Whether you're an audiophile or a Monkphile, you'll wan't to check out LIVE AT MONTEREY... Jazz Times (08/01/1997)
