2012 reissue on 180g LP+download=  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. A truly unique date, and one that fans of Monk should not hesitate to pick up, this classic LP is now available on vinyl.

Pianist Thelonious Monk's appearance with a tentet at a 1959 Town Hall concert was a major success. With Hal Overton contributing arrangements of Monk's tunes (including a remarkable transcription of Monk's original piano solo on "Little Rootie Tootie") and solos provided by trumpeter Donald Byrd, trombonist Eddie Bert, altoist Phil Woods, Charlie Rouse on tenor, and baritonist Pepper Adams, this date was a real standout. There would only be one other recorded occasion -- Monk's 1963 Philharmonic Hall concert -- when the unique pianist was as successfully featured with a larger ensemble. ALLMUSIC
