At about 40 minutes, you'll find Bladerunner and Monk. This recording starts with Paquito d' Rivera lofting some Gershwin segments.

Here is the cover of the album that has rediscovered the works recorded live by Theloious Monk and John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall. "Monk's Mood" is contained in the audio of today's program.

  1. But, unfortunately, we had to wait nearly 12 years for the Bladerunner soundtrack to get a proper release.
    Up till then, there was a horrid, symphonic re-creation of Vangelis' excellent score, or badly reproduced bootlegs taken from the film's sound board.
    Beautiful score.
    Beautiful, if not flawed movie.
