President's Message
September 2005

The Library of Congress announced that tapes bearing nearly an hour of the Thelonius Monk quartet with John Coltrane were found in January. These tapes came from a concert at Carnegie Hall on Nov. 29, 1957, a benefit for a community center. The concert was recorded by the Voice of America and also incudes sets by the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra, Ray Charles, and the Sonny Rollins Trio. The music was discovered by accident during routine transfer of analog tapes to digital; the tape was marked "sp. Event 11/29/57 carnegie jazz concert (#1)" with no names on it. The VOA was allowed to record free of charge as long as it broadcast only overseas; this was regarded as diplomacy through music. NYT 25Ap05
