3.0 out of 5 stars Really good for what it is August 2, 2012
By L. Levy
Format:Audio CD
This is NOT the soundtrack that Thelonious Monk created for the Roger Vadim Liaisons Dangereuse. That music has only been available as an integral part of the film. Monk did not create any new music, but he set some of his original works to score the film. They are different from other renditions and fit very well.

The Blakey sets are what is available on this CD. They are quite good and more than worth acquiring and listening to. However this is not the Monk soundtrack. (Neither is the Duke Jordan recording of the same name.)

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked Jazz Messengers album April 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Although there are no sound samples on this page at the time of this review, you can listen to most of the tracks on an album credited to Duke Jordan (adding to the confusion because it implies he is the pianist on all tracks) with the same title: Les Liasons Dangereuses (MP3 album). Not all of the tracks are on that one, but it will give you a good idea of the music.

The interesting (and confusing) thing about this album is it's a partial soundtrack to the movie of the same title, Les Liaisons Dangereuses DVD. Thelonious Monk composed and performed the score, but that music has never been released on a record.

This album is only part of the soundtrack and is the score for the extended party scene, and is often credited to Duke Jordan. He composed all but one track (Prelude in Blue), but the pianist is Bobby Timmons on all but one track (the same one that Jordan did not compose, but played on).

In fact, this is an Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers album with the following line-up: Lee Morgan on cornet (a departure from trumpet), Barney Wilen on tenor and soprano sax, and the rhythm section that includes Timmons and Jordan on piano, Jymie Merritt on bass, Art Blakey on drums and additional percussion by Tommy Lopez and Willie Rodriguez on congas, and Johnny Rodriguez n bongos. It was recorded for the French label, Fontana, at Nola's Penthouse Sound Studios in NYC on July 28 & 29, 1959.

While this is not an essential Jazz Messengers album, it's a fun listen and hard core fans will love it. And for the record, Monk recorded his contributions to the soundtrack at the same studio on July 27, 1959, with charlie Rouse and Wilen on tenor sax, Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums. I am hoping those tracks will eventually be released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD June 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A rare find, soundtrack from an old film, also difficult to find. The music is classic jazz, fun to listen to while driving.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Sweet & Jazzy" July 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD is what I'd like to call "Sweet & Jazzy". It's something you'd like to listen to while you wash the dishes, take a shower, eat a meal with "someone special", or even alone. The music has rhythm, it's soft, but still holds on to that "1958" European sound. Like "Keri, it's so very-very"... It's mellow an nice, and something I enjoyed.
