Live at the Jazz Workshop is a live album by jazz pianist Thelonious Monk that was recorded at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco. The album was recorded in 1964 and released by Columbia in 1982.

Release history[edit]

The tapes of these two shows stayed locked away in the Columbia Records vault for almost 20 years, until the label released a double-LP from them shortly after Monk's death in 1982.[citation needed] A CD release followed in 2001, under the name of "Live at the Jazz Workshop - Complete", featuring a number of bonus tracks, and nearly doubling the length of the record.
