Sam Records & Saga present: Thelonious Monk – Les liaisons dangereuses 1960

A landmark discovery! Never-before released Thelonious Monk 1959 studio recording.
Monk’s only film soundtrack, for Roger Vadim’s famed French film Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960.
Features Monk’s 1959 all-star working band of Charlie Rouse, Sam Jones & Art Taylor, plus special guest French Saxophonist Barney Wilen.

Recorded at Nola Penthouse Sound Studio, 111 W. 57th., New York, N.Y., July 27, 1959. – Sam Records

“On Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960, Monk is a heavyweight engaging with a middleweight, and middlebrow, in Vadim, whose career was more defined by his romantic conquests than his artistic content. But that’s not on Monk. And his work here, in the middle of 1959, is as thought-provoking as anything he recorded in that prodigious year.” – Pitchfork
