Most widely held works by Thelonious Monk
Jazz on a summer's day( Visual )

13 editions published between 1959 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enshrined in the National Film Registry in 1999, Bert Stern's 1959 film offers precisely what its title promises. Along with a wealth of great music, the film subtly conveys the economic differences between the music's origins and Newport's wealthy citizens, and highlights the concentration and playfulness of great musicians by photographing them as intimately as possible. Despite the title, this concert film's performances--captured over the course of a weekend during the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival--really shine when night falls. As a documentary, it stylishly immortalizes transcendently beautiful music played on a glorious day, suggesting in the process that film might have no higher purpose
Bird and Diz by Charlie Parker( Recording )

35 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set contains the complete original LP Bird and Diz (Verve MGV-8006), consisting of a quintet session which marked Parker and Gillespie's last studio date ever (although they would later be recorded together live on numerous occasions, including the celebrated 1953 Massey Hall concert). This session was also Parker's only studio encounter with the great Thelonious Monk. As a bonus, all existing complete alternate takes not present on the 12" LP, as well as the only two breakdown takes with full Parker solos, and three further complete quintet and quartet sessions recorded by Bird for Verve during the same period, one of them featuring Miles Davis on trumpet"--Container
