Summary, etc.:
"In December 1969, Thelonious Monk entered a television studio in Paris ... The result was an astonishingly intimate and revealing portrait of a man and his music. Monk sits at at the piano and plays whatever occurs to him. In this case, it was nine originals and two of his favorite standards. The freedom of playing unaccompanied allows Monk to give each composition fascinating new twists and variations."--Container.
