Monk in Belgium

I've posted a portion of this concert featuring Thelonious Monk and his quartet from a date in Belgium before, but the entire concert has emerged and it's incredible so here it is:

Dig the fine drumming from Frankie Dunlop and the nice solo drum feature that Dunlop plays about half-way through the concert (I posted that one's great!)

Does anybody know if it was common for Monk to have his drummers's play stand-alone solo pieces like that? (very Max Roach influenced I'd say)
