Thelonious Monk Concert Album Palo Alto Coming Out This Month


Thelonious Monk’s Palo Alto, the first-ever release of a recording made at Palo Alto High School on October 27, 1968, was postponed earlier this year. Originally scheduled to be released by Impulse! Records on July 31, its release was pulled due to circumstances outside the label’s control, an Impulse! representative told Pitchfork at the time. Now, a new release date has been announced for Palo Alto, and another label is involved.

Palo Alto will be available on September 18. Impulse! Records will be releasing the physical editions, and Legacy Recordings is releasing the album digitally.

Before it was revealed that Palo Alto had been postponed, the lead single from the release “Epistrophy” had been removed from streaming services. Physical copies of Palo Alto were reportedly already sent to and sold in some stores.
