The Newark Star-Ledger has an interesting article today about the newly found Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane CD, due for release this week:
But the Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane, deemed by many who heard it to be the equal of those two ensembles, both in terms of sheer musicality and historical importance, lasted less than five months, playing from mid-July to early-December 1957 at the Five Spot jazz club in New York. And until now, there were no commercial recordings documenting the group.
