Thelonious_Monk_and_Howard_McGhee,_Minton's_Playhouse_,_Sept_1947_(Gottlieb_10248)A quick heads up: Last week we told you all about how Thelo­nious Monk flubbed his first con­cert in Paris in 1954 and then made a tri­umphant return in 1969. The ’69 con­cert has just been released as a new CD, but, for a lim­it­ed time, you can hear it stream­ing online,  from start to fin­ish, for free. It’s all thanks to NPR’s First Lis­ten site. Enjoy.
