Thelonious Monk is one of Jazz’s and, indeed America’s, most unique artists. His compositions are among the most loved in Jazz. Drummers David Throckmorton and Thomas Wendt have teamed up to present some of Monk’s music in a setting consisting of two very different trios, as well as in a duo setting. This project gives the audience a most interesting way to experience Monk, one that showcases the true diversity of his music.
