The Thelonious Monk Orchestra

At Town Hall

Original Release: 1959


A rarity  in pianist Thelonious Monk's recorded output, At Town Hall captures the idiosyncratic genius in concert with a large ensemble featuring a star-studded cast, including trumpeter Donald Byrd, trombonist Eddie Bert, altoist Phil Woods, tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse, and baritonist Pepper Adams, among others.  The 1959 Town Hall concert was a major success and one of only two recorded performances of Monk in a large group setting. Highlights include original arrangements by Hall Overton and Monk’s stylish, impressionistic soloing throughout.
