Digital Media: Monk & More

Heard lovely T. Monk music on NPR yesterday afternoon.

There's a new recording from the Library of Congress of 1957 Jazz at Carnegie Hall.

More about Thelonious Monk at The Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz (source of this photo).

Quite a group of people in that concert: John Coltrane, Shadow Wilson, Thelonious Monk and Ahmed Abdul-Malik.

This stuff is ephemeral; we're lucky to have it.

Acetate tapes. Imagine.
