The Thelonious Monk Quartet delivers an invigorating 1963 performance in Japan. With Monk are tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse, bassist Butch Warren and drummer Frankie Dunlop. The video has an episode of Monk’s occasional urge to incorporate a bit of impromptu terpsichore. The piece is “Evidence,” which Monk constructed on the harmonies of the standard song “Just You, Just Me.”
I hope that you’re having a good weekend.
