Monk in Tokyo is a live album recorded in 1963 and first released in 1969 by CBS/Sony Records, featuring several original Monk compositions as well as jazz standards. Disc One: "Straight, No Chaser" (9:46). Just a Gigolo" (2:30). Evidence (Justice)" (7:55). Bemsha Swing" (4:25). Disc Two: "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" (9:28). Thelonious Monk – piano.

Recorded live in Tokyo, this LP captures the quartet on their first Asian tour, performing mostly Thelonious Monk's own tunes, such as "Straight, No Chaser," "Blue Monk," and "Bemsha Swing. The Japanese audience reacts enthusiastically, with the quartet responding in kind with a generally inspired performance. There are few, if any, surprises - just solid playing and delightfully swinging, and at times hard-hitting, group and individual performances.

Monk’s quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone was formed in 1959 and endured until 1970. It was recorded more than any other group lead by Monk, and Rouse has been unfairly condemned since the beginning for the crime of not being John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, or Johnny Griffin (all heard in earlier Monk lineups). Rouse was a fine player in his own right, and his sound and phrasing were well suited to Monk’s music. Still, with dozens of live recordings by the quartet to choose from, why should listeners choose Monk in Tokyo? Rouse is in average form, but bassist Butch Warren and drummer.

This should appeal to collectors as well as first-time listeners who wish to own at least one Monk quartet album. Despite the short recording time, the music is of a consistently high quality and it is well-recorded, too, making this a valuable, if not indispensable, issue. 1 Straight, No Chaser Thelonious Monk Quartet 9:46. 2 Pannonica Thelonious Monk Quartet 7:45. 3 Just a Gigolo Thelonious Monk 2:28. 4 Evidence (Justice) Thelonious Monk Quartet 7:52. 5 Jackie-Ing Thelonious Monk 5:8. 6 Bemsha Swing Thelonious Monk Quartet 4:26
