If you can dig both Ozzy and Thelonious you are my type of person!
Check out this awesome show by Monk and his European tour quartet in 1966, supposedly in Warsaw. Poland loves jazz but who knows how they got these guys behind the Iron Curtain – I haven’t read that far yet in the Monk bio I’m engrossed in 😉
Actually, this might be mislabeled, people are saying this show is from Oslo, Norway, which was not communist at the time, and would explain the american jazz band.
Whichever, great show.
