John Beasley's MONK'estra & The Thelonious Monk Institute Jazz Ensemble
It's a DOUBLE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION for Thelonious Monk and John Beasley featuring John's MONK'estra and The TMIJ.
"Beasley has taken all the Monk compositions, rendered them new without reducing their Monkishness one iota. The result is thrilling! State of the art jazz that never gets bogged down by art" Brick Wahl, International Review of Music
