Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 - Thelonious Monk - Vinyl LP - 0881034155443

SKU: 0881034155443
Vinyl LP pressing. The only soundtrack recorded by Thelonious Monk in 1959. Contains performances of classic Monk tunes heard in Roger Vadim's 1960 French film Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Features Monk's 1959 all-star band of Charlie Rouse, Sam Jones and Art Taylor, plus special guest saxophonist Barney Wilen. Thelonious Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire. Monk is the second most-recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed more than a thousand pieces, whereas Monk wrote about 70. His compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations.
