Odds and Ends

I got a chance to hear the highly anticipated archival release of Thelonious Monk w/ John Coltrane:

Label chief Bruce Lundvall broadcasts the world premiere of a newly-discovered recording of jazz giants Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane. The Carnegie Hall concert on November 29, 1957 featured the Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane and was recorded by Voice of America for an overseas radio broadcast. Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall will be released by Blue Note Records in conjunction with Thelonious Records on September 27, 2005. T.S. Monk, son of the late Thelonious Monk, will be Bruce's special guest.

Also, I went to my friend John's record store and found some very interesting stuff:

Johnny Hodges & Fatha Hines - Stride Right
Professor Longhair - The Last Mardi Gras
Jimmy Smith - Fantastic
The Keith Tippett Group
Detroit Jr. - Chicago Urban Blues
Ennio Morricone - Film Music Vol. 2
