At Carnegie Hall songs Product Information
At Carnegie Hall album for sale by John Coltrane / Thelonious Monk / Thelonious Quartet Monk was released Sep 27, 2005 on the Blue Note (Label) label. On paper it seems as if such titanic and distinctive musical personalities as Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane might not mix very well, but this stellar set, recorded live at Carnegie Hall in 1957, plays almost like a blissful extended duet between the two (with support from a sensitive yet hard-swinging bassist and drummer).

||Two masters at the top of their form|
Both jazz fans and future jazz fans should be so grateful for the discovery of this recording. Forget the fact that this is two of the jazz masters of all time at the top of their game captured just as their music was to make a dramatic change -- this album is just plain, old fashioned great listening.
By JFARRIS7 (Austin, TX, USA)
A seminal recording of two jazz masters that should be on anyone's desert island discs list.

||A GREAT DISCOVERY: MONK AND COLTRANE AT THERE BEST|
The discovery of Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane performing at Carnegie Hall has to go down as one of the greatest finds in the history of American music.
By mwalimu147 (Crete. Illinois)
This CD documents Monk at his height and Trane on the way up. It's fun to hear how each influenced the other.
By larrylevy (Dallas, TX, USA)
It is great that after all these years, a 1957 recording can still be discovered, and in excellent shape. Playing is excellent, and songs - all by Monk - are classics.
