Previously Unheard 1968 High School Concert by Thelonious Monk on Impulse!

Palo Alto, a previously unheard recording of a 1968 high school performance by jazz great Thelonius Monk, also marks his posthumous debut on the revered Impulse! label. The surprise set came about after 16-year-old high school student Danny Scher had a dream to invite the storied pianist and composer and his all-star quartet to perform a concert at his local high school in Palo Alto, California. Against a backdrop of racial tension and political volatility, the concert took place on October 27, 1968, and was recorded by the school's janitor. The 47-minute album features Monk's regular touring band of tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse, bassist Larry Gales and drummer Ben Riley. It also highlights his touring repertoire, which constituted his finest compositions.
