Event

Live at Studio5: DOUBLE MONK
Jeremy Kahn & Steve Million, pianos
Ariane Dolan, choreographer/dancer

I've known the music -- and pianistic brilliance -- of Jeremy Kahn and Steve Million for some time, but I have never heard them perform together live. When I learned they had developed a dual-piano concert based on the music of Thelonious Monk ... which includes a modern dancer, I was eager to welcome them to Studio5. It feels like a perfect fit. The following is information I received from the artists:

Steve Million and Jeremy Kahn, like most jazz pianists, share a fascination with the music of Thelonious Monk. They have dared to conceive a performance project based on this fascination in which they perform Monk's music on two pianos. At times this duo is joined by the modern dancer Ariane Dolan who has choreographed dances to their musical arrangements. The duo picks many tunes that the master himself rarely performed including: Who Knows, Criss Cross, Hornin In, and Oska T, to name a few. They bring to each performance over thirty years of jazz piano playing experience, a wink to the audience and a nod to Monk himself.

About Double Monk, the Chicago Tribunes Howard Reich wrote, "...it didn't take long to discern the distinctions between Million's pianism and Kahn's, particularly in solos. In essence, Million produced a sharper-edged tone and more angular turns of phrase, Kahn a rounded timbre and silvery touch. Put the two together, and you have a deeply satisfying sound and practically relentless musical action."

We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience! See you there! -SR

Cash bar, light snacks, free parking right outside! Doors open for cocktails at 7:30.
