For its 10-year anniversary, the Angel City Jazz Festival presents a special tribute to innovative jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk in celebration of his centennial. Monk’s impact on today’s jazz cannot be overstated — virtually every living jazz musician has been deeply influenced by his radically original music. The celebration kicks off with “Thelonious Monk's Afro-Cuban Dream,” adding the clave to Carmen McRae's «Carmen sings Monk,” featuring Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals, Brian Lynch on trumpet, Conrad Herwig on trombone, Manuel Valera on piano, Ruben Rodriguez on bass, Richie Flores on conga and Robby Ameen on drums. The final part of the program reimages Monk DJ style, with performances by DJ Logic, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Deantoni Parks and Steve Lehman slicing and sampling Monk through Beasley's own MONKestra records.

Artistic Director: John Beasley
