A fascinating behind-the-scenes documentary with extraordinary rarely-seen performances, Rewind & Play offers a unique opportunity to see Thelonious Monk in a way that very few people did.
In December 1969, legendary jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk ended his European concert tour with a performance at the Salle Pleyel in Paris. Before the show, he was invited to appear on a French television programme to perform and answer questions in an intimate setting.
Using newly discovered footage from this recording, director Alain Gomis reveals the disconnect between Monk and his interviewer, Henri Renaud, whose unwittingly trivializing approach conveys the casual racism and exploitation prevalent in the music industry at large.
