Record of the Day – Thelonious Monk: Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960
Today it’s Thelonious Monk’s recently issued soundtrack for Les Liaisons Dangereuses, recorded in 1960. Love the glossy cover photo.
I’m no expert, but some are saying this recording is among those that display Monk in his prime. He wrote no new music for the film, but instead rearranged existing tunes. The recording is excellent – among those I’ve heard this is my favorite. The pressing is also very nice and quiet.
