Thelonious Monk: Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960

Read "Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Ecco un'occasione in cui una recensione solitamente attacca con “riesumato tesoro musicale nascosto," “ritrovato scrigno sonoro inaspettato," e via di seguito. Invece sarà meglio chiedersi: ma come? Un quartetto di Thelonious Monk (più Barney Wilen ospite) incide dei pezzi per un film di Roger Vadim, alla luce del sole, non certo in incognito, e ...

Thelonious Monk: Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960

Read "Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Few things are as infused with as much romance as are those thought lost. Take the entire myth of blues singer Robert Johnson. He produced 29 shellac sides in the late 1920s that had immeasurable influence on American folk music after and then he disappeared. He did exist, but exists now only as a phantom, a ...

Thelonious Monk: Movie Music

Pianist Thelonious Monk recorded only one movie soundtrack in his career—for the French film Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 (The Dangerous Laisons), directed by Roger Vadim in 1959. The film was about a married couple who help each other have extramarital affairs (hey, it was France in the late 1950s). Though the film was largely panned, it ...

Finding a lost movie soundtrack by composer/pianist Thelonious Monk at this late date seems an improbable event, at the very least. But that is what we have here: previously unreleased performances heard in Roger Vadim's famous 1959 French film Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The official soundtrack album released at the time included only the music by Art ...

There's a purity and innocence in the music of pianist/composer Thelonious Monk. But a subtle complexity colored his tunes, masked by an enchanting approach-ability. You hear “Bemsha Swing," “Well You Needn't," “In Walked Bud," and the melodies won't leave your head; they soak into your neural circuitry, permanently. Monk emerged in the late forties ...

Read "Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's nearly impossible to underestimate the importance of the discovery of the tapes Thelonious Monk made for the French film Les Liasons Dangereuses 1960. Recorded in New York in July 1959, the session, although used in the film, was filed away for some 55 years. Recovered and remastered, we hear not only the soundtrack, but alternate ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
