A NEVER-BEFORE-RELEASED SOUNDTRACK TO AN OUT-OF-PRINT FILM APPEARS ALMOST 60 YEARS LATER

INCLUDES A 60-PAGE COLOR BOOKLET

In 1959, Thelonious Monk recorded the soundtrack for the French film "Les Liaisons Dangereuses". The film is now out-of-print, and Monk’s music from the film has never been officially released…. until now. The sessions feature bassist Sam Jones, drummer Art Taylor, and tenor saxophonists Charlie Rouse and Barney Wilen. The double CD set includes a great booklet with never-before-seen photographs from the session, and several informative essays that throw a light on many issues concerning the soundtrack.
