Roger Vadim’s controversial 1959 movie features a signature soundtrack from Thelonious Monk, finally released in full this year to critical acclaim. As well as the Monk score – ‘as thought-provoking as anything he recorded in that prodigious year’ (Pitchfork), the film also features Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
