T.s. Monk: Monk On Monk at Scottsdale Center for the Arts
Thelonious Monk Centennial Celebration. In celebration of what would have been famed jazz composer-pianist Thelonious Monk’s 100th birthday, his son T.S. Monk carries on his father’s legacy with the groundbreaking “Monk On Monk” 10-piece configuration. The band features the instrumentation Thelonious himself employed in his legendary Town Hall concert. T.S. Monk is an acclaimed drummer, composer, record company founder, band leader and vocalist. His tribute to his iconic father, who was known as the “High Priest of Bebop” and the “Father of Modern Jazz,” has garnered numerous awards, critical praise and fan acclaim. Whether newly discovered compositions by his father or legendary songs such as “Round Midnight,” the music is overpowering, swinging and timeless. ScottsdalePerformingArts.org
