We?ve been waxing poetic about the upcoming release of the recently discovered Thelonious Monk (pictured) and John Coltrane album for quite a bit now (see Update! Monk and Coltrane Tapes and Unreleased Monk and Coltrane Tapes Found), but we?ve got one more tidbit before the big release on Sept. 27.

Sirius Satellite Radio will broadcast the world premiere of the 1957 concert on Sept. 9 on channel Pure Jazz 72 during the Blue Note Hour with Bruce Lundvall at 6 p.m. EST. Repeat broadcasts are also scheduled for Sept. 10 at 11 p.m. and Sept. 11 at 9 a.m., EST. Expect to hear tunes including ?Monk?s Mood,? ?Evidence,? ?Crepuscule with Nellie,? ?Nutty,? Epistrophy? and ?Sweet & Lovely.?
