Thelonious Monk Nonet Live In Paris 1967 is a live jazz album by Thelonious Monk on France's Concert Records LP FC-113, released in 1988.

Recorded at "Salle Pleyel", Paris, France, November 3, 1967, Thelonious Monk Nonet Live in Paris is a concert recording of a rare large group that Monk assembled for the European tour, which featured the addition of some of the top horn players in jazz.


Jazz critic Scott Yanow wrote of the album: “a rare recording (of a large group) making it a historical curiosity; more importantly the music (featuring six originals) is excellent."[2]


Monk organized this concert in an unusual way. The musicians joined the original quartet by coming on one by one to join in.[3]
