The Van Morrison record is a vinyl edition of a never-before-released 1978 set, performed at the Bottom Line Club, a venue that launched the careers of both Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel, among countless others. It's a stunning show that features Morrison at his best, performing some of his classics, including "Brown Eyed Girl," "Moondance" and "Into the Mystic." The Monk record features his remarkable July 3rd set at the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival, where the enigmatic pianist-composer was accompanied by his longtime tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse and the rarely recorded rhythm tandem of bassist Sam Jones and drummer Art Taylor.
