Blue Movies . . . Monk in Oslo

From YouTube (soon to be Googled?) comes a great 10+ minute clip from the video "Monk in Oslo," recorded by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation on April 15, 1966.  It shows Thelonious Monk and his Quartet in all its glory:

With Monk are Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, Larry Gales on bass, and Ben Riley on drums.

This video is available as a bonus DVD on the set Monk 'Round The World from Hyena Records. It's a great CD/DVD set of Monk in Europe. Really worth it. Here's an article about the set from the time of its release:

See you on the scene,
