In the afternoon of 15 APR 1966, Thelonious Monk’s quartet recorded - without an audience - at the NRK TV studio in Oslo, Norway, Monk’s only stop in Norway ever:
00:00 Lulu’s Back In Town
15:33 Blue Monk
25:44 ‘Round Midnight
(Riley plays a bikini kit: his drums were lost en route.)

Two days later the Quartet was in another TV studio. This Sunday session in Copenhagen, Denmark, also lacked an audience:
32:35 Lulu's Back in Town
50:20 Don't Blame Me, unaccompanied piano
55:47 Epistrophy
