Since his formidable emergence on the music scene in the late 90s, jazz pianist Jason Moran has proven more than his brilliance as a performer—he has established himself as a risk-taker and innovator of new directions for jazz as a whole. In almost every category that matters—improvisation, composition, group concept, repertoire, technique and experimentation—Moran and his group Big Bandwagon have challenged the status quo, and earned a reputation as “the future of jazz.” In 2007, Moran was commissioned to create In My Mind: Monk at Town Hall, 1959, the critically-acclaimed multimedia performance investigating Thelonious Monk’s famous recording, Monk at Town Hall. The original concert was the first time that Monk—jazz’s most innovative pianist—had performed his work with an orchestra. In My Mind examines Monk’s process of creating this seminal concert using audio of conversations with Monk and arranger Hal Overton, with archival photographs, and video produced by David Dempewolf. Not surprising, the legendary Monk had a pivotal role in influencing young Moran to become a jazz musician. In 1981, at the age of six, the Houston native began studying the piano, but longed to quit until he first heard the sounds of Monk. In My Mind is both a recreation of this historic event and a celebration of a true American master.
