Unheard Thelonious Monk Lp Set For Release

‘Thelonious Monk: Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960’ contains recordings from a set of master tapes recorded in 1959, in New York, during sessions recording the soundtrack to Roger Vadim’s film of the same name. The LP is to feature solo, trio and quartet versions of classic Monk tunes as well as works composed for the soundtrack.
