Thelonious Monk Centennial Celebration with Jason Moran and Kenny Barron

Two days before what would have been the 100th birthday of Thelonious Monk (born October 10, 1917), Jason Moran salutes the lasting legacy of the late pianist, composer, and architect of modern jazz—one of Moran’s greatest influences. “I will spend my dying hours praising him,” says Moran. The celebration includes NEA Jazz Master and pianist Kenny Barron and others. Full lineup to be announced at a later date.
