    He did do some small college gigs, but his days of commercial concerts were over after booking agencies learned of the Carnegie Hall event.

    At the time that came out (I was new to Monk then), I was leery of it because I was afraid that it was 'the jazz equivalent of Electric Mud and Howlin' Wolf Doesn't Like His New Record' both of which I'd already fallen for (not knowing any better) and opted for earlier ones, until I realized that 'there's nothing to be scared of on this one.'

    For me, this is still Hancock’s best album. I definitely prefer his earlier work to the direction he took after leaving Miles.

    I've had about four digital versions of this and though not fantastic for the time and place of this recording I'd say it's not at all "lousy." But we all have different ideas of what a bad recording may be. Still, I think other releases may sound better than what you have.

    This more recent release sounds the best I've heard this material and is expanded with live material:

    Thelonious Monk – Piano Solo (2017, CD)

    Thanks Lon. I buy the cheapo budget boxes to explore the music inexpensively. Where warranted I can upgrade later. Good to know which one to upgrade to!

    NP: Bud Powell Trio - Budism (3CD, SteepleChase, 1992)

    Bud Powell (p), Torbjörn Hultcranz (b), Sune Spångberg (d)

    About two months ago, I found cheap copies of the five volumes of Powell's At The Golden Circle. I think it was @Tribute who then pointed me towards this set with his other 1962 Golden Circle recordings. Early this month I found an affordable copy of this set and it is (unsurprisingly) enjoyable.

    Powell's playing seems tentative and delicate - almost vulnerable - to me, but maybe that is just my projection. However, projection or not, this is 200 minutes of highly emotive music to which I'll probably often return.

    Kicking back on a late summer afternoon while giving this old school Quincy Jones jazz record a spin. Released in 1957.

    It’s okay. There’s a certain spirit in Hancock’s playing when he was younger that I find more impressive than anything he has done later on.

    The 2017 reissue was mastered in France from the original tapes and sounds much better: Thelonious Monk – Piano Solo (2017, CD)

    https://www.amazon.com/-/en/Theloni...lonious+monk+piano+solo&qid=1632249092&sr=8-1

    Comes with a nice informative booklet and bonus live tracks from the concert that was the occasion for Monk's first visit to Europe. Released by Sony France.

    Really enjoying this E.E. album which pays tribute to the genius of Bill Evans. Her vocal rendition of "Detour Ahead" is the icing on the cake. Eliane is aging like a fine wine.

    By the way, @Robitjazz I’ll assume you bought the recently issued Lee Morgan The Complete Live at the Lighthouse? It’s fabulous of course.
