March 2, 1963
SWF-TV “Jazz Gehort und Gesehen”
Baden-Baden, Germany
Thelonious Monk (solo piano)
Note: The title given by Monk and subsequently listed, “Bye and Bye When the Morning Comes,” is incorrect.  This is merely the first line of the chorus.  The song, “We’ll Understand it Better, By and By,” was composed by the Reverend Charles Tindley.  See Kelley, Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original.
