OURBIGBAND plays Frank Carlberg's "Monk Dreams, Hallucinations, and Nightmares"
Staying true to their mission to collaborate, the Seacoast's own, OURBIGBAND, will host jazz pianist and composer Frank Carlberg

"The pianists writing and versatility come across like line drawings which break a solid page of text in a publication. Thematic links to Thelonious Monks crooked time sense (especially on Now and Forever) and Herbie Nichols joyous abandon (more pointedly on Get it?), allow Carlberg to create a space where bop, cool and free impulses intersect." - Ken Waxman, The Whole Note (on Carlberg's Cosmopolitan Greetings)

"Frank Carlberg is pushing boundaries and we will be watching closely" - Steve Williams, UKVibe

MONK DREAMS, HALLUCINATIONS AND NIGHTMARES, the new large ensemble recording from Frank Carlberg (on Red Piano Records), draws its inspiration from the work of Thelonious Monk. The album taps into the atmosphere and orbit of Monk; infected by, informed by, in awe of Monk, and presented as an act of love and respect. The pieces generate their shapes from splinters, cells and feelings found in and around Monks music, as well as from his verbal utterances in the form of advice and/or cryptic observations. MONK DREAMS, HALLUCINATIONS AND NIGHTMARES is not intended as a tribute album, but rather as, "a celebration of the beauty and vitality of his music that has impacted me profoundly," explained Frank Carlberg. "I thought it fitting to present this recording during the Monk Centennial year, 2017."

Why Monk? Carlberg explains: For me, a Monk-inspired project is quite personal. Monks music has been central to my musical life from very early on. The clarity of his thought, the uncompromising nature of his art, the emotional impact Monks music has made on me; this recording is a culmination of all these elements, and being able to record this music with these remarkable musicians is really a dream come true for me!

Monk Dreams, Hallucinations and Nightmares is not your grandfathers Big Band music. Specifically, it offers new perspectives on Monks music, and on compositions for large jazz ensemble in general.  It celebrates Thelonious Monk on his centennial while forging new paths in modern jazz by balancing the improvisational impulses with exciting orchestral and structural designs.
