Grammy nominated pianist, composer and arranger John Beasley joins the KJO for a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Thelonious Monk’s birth. Beasley is the creator of the Monk’estra, a group that celebrates the genius of Monk’s music with a contemporary twist, incorporating Afro-Cuban rhythms, modern jazz, hip-hop and big band instrumentation. Veteran critic Don Heckman calls Beasley’s work “some of the most mesmerizing big band music of recent memory.”
