Concert Vault presents this exclusive 180-gram vinyl of Thelonious Monk's July 3rd set at the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival, where the enigmatic pianist-composer was accompanied by his longtime tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse and the rarely recorded rhythm tandem of bassist Sam Jones and drummer Art Taylor. Together they swung sympathetically and brilliantly on Monk staples like "In Walked Bud" and "Well You Needn't" along with a rousing "Rhythm-a-ning," while also displaying uncommon sensitivity on the evocative ballad "Crepuscule with Nellie." This stellar performance came just four months after Monk's celebrated Town Hall concert in New York, which featured ambitious tentet renditions of his music arranged by Hall Overton.

One of the most original voices and idiosyncratic piano stylists in all of jazz, Thelonious Monk was also one of the genre's most prolific composers. His staggering output includes tunes that have become classics - "'Round Midnight," "Blue Monk," "Straight No Chaser," "Epistrophy," "Pannonica" and "Bemsha Swing," to name just a few - and have been covered by innumerable artists over the past 50 years.
