On a few unforgettable occasions, Chick Corea has joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis – a group he calls “the greatest big band on the planet” – to perform transformative new iterations of his music. Now, for the first time, they’re joining forces to explore the work of another master pianist and composer: Thelonious Monk, the high priest of modern music. Corea has provided the JLCO with a list of his favorite Monk compositions, and the band’s brilliant arrangers have crafted inspired new versions of these classics. With complex yet always-swinging rhythms, poetic and beautiful harmonic progressions, and iconoclastic, tuneful melodies, Monk’s compositions lend themselves to endless adaptation. The ensemble sections of these new arrangements and Chick Corea’s masterful, original take on Monk’s harmonies will demonstrate why this repertoire is a definitive platform for thoughtful improvisation and high quality jazz.
