This clip, which I bumped into the other day, may be the best I have ever seen of an artist whose music means as much to me as anyone’s.

Thelonious Monk (1917-1982, piano, compositions) with Charlie Rouse (tenor saxophone), Butch Warren (b), Frankie Dunlop (drums), live (TV show: “Evidence,” “Blue Monk,” Just a Gigolo” [L. Casucci, J. Brammer, I. Caesar], “Ba-Lue Bolivar Ba-Lues,” “Epistrophy”), Tokyo (Japan), 1963
