John Beasley
Presents MONK'estra, Volume 1

John Beasley - Presents MONK'estra, Volume 1

Thelonious Monk is a Mount Rushmore figure in the creation of modern jazz. As the centennial of his birth rapidly approaches, John Beasley - pianist, conductor and arranger - has grappled with the complex composer’s legacy with his versatile big band riffing on the wit and unmistakable architecture of the Monk songbook with irrepressible energy and swinging abandon on MONK’estra, Volume 1.
