Thelonious Monk With John Coltrane: 1957 Concert Due Sept 27

Blue Note Records has emerged the triumphant owner of a 1957 recording by the Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane, trumping the interest of Sony BMG’s Legacy Recordings and Verve Records. The tentatively titled “Thelonious Monk With John Coltrane: 1957 Concert” is due Sept. 27.

Jazz specialist Larry Appelbaum uncovered the coveted musical relic in January at the Library of Congress. Negotiations for commercial release rights were completed June 13. “This is one of the most important discoveries in jazz ever,” Blue Note president/CEO Bruce Lundvall says. “We’re thrilled to have it.”
