Recorded live in Tokyo, this LP captures the quartet on their first Asian tour, performing mostly Thelonious Monk's own tunes, such as Straight, No Chaser, Blue Monk, and Bemsha Swing. The Japanese audience reacts enthusiastically, with the quartet responding in kind with a generally inspired performance. There are few, if any, surprises - just solid playing and delightfully swinging, and at times hard-hitting, group and individual performances. All tracks are written by Thelonious Monk except where noted. Disc One: Straight, No Chaser - 9:46. Pannonica - 7:46.

Monks quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone was formed in 1959 and endured until 1970. It was recorded more than any other group lead by Monk, and Rouse has been unfairly condemned since the beginning for the crime of not being John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, or Johnny Griffin all heard in earlier Monk lineups. Still, with dozens of live recordings by the quartet to choose from, why should listeners choose Monk in Tokyo Rouse is in average form, but bassist Butch Warren and drummer Ben Riley swing like mad, the sound is excellent, and Monk himself sounds inspired-we hold him in such high regard as a composer we can forget what a great soloist he was. Personnel: Thelonious Monk piano Johnny Griffin saxophone, tenor. Thelonious Monk - Evidence - Japan 1963 - Продолжительность: 8:46. 1963 was in fact the first year Monk toured Japan, which of course has become a veritable motherlode of Monk devotees ever since. For whatever reason, Monk's music is extremely appealing to Japanese sensibilities maybe they GET it a little more than the rest of us. Or maybe Monk was Japanese in a former lifetime. Thelonious-san In any event, this is fine live Monk that is on par with the fantastic Live at the It Club
