Blue Note has issued a press release stating it's intention to release the newly discovered concert with Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane:

On September 27th, Blue Note Records will release Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane: 1957 Concert (**WORKING TITLE), a never-before heard jazz classic that documents one of the most historically important working bands in all of Jazz history, a band that was both short-lived and under-recorded. The concert, which took place on November 29, 1957, at the famed New York concert hall, was preserved on newly-discovered tapes made by Voice of America for a later radio broadcast that were located at the Library of Congress in Washington DC earlier this year.
