With its iconic melodies, insightful harmonic progressions, and complex but danceable rhythms, the music of Thelonious Monk offers limitless opportunity for improvisation and interpretation. Monk’s music is loved all over the world, and because of its fundamental simplicity, musicians of all styles and backgrounds find kinship in it. This global exploration of Monk features the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, two very special guests, and brand new Monk arrangements. The first of tonight’s featured guests is flutist Baqir Abbas, a virtuoso Pakistani musician who has performed with the JLCO on several prestigious occasions. Abbas’ solo-trading performance with Ted Nash is a highlight of Song of Lahore – the 2015 documentary chronicling the Sachal Jazz Ensemble’s historic journey to the Rose Theater stage. The JLCO’s second guest this evening is Hamilton de Holanda, a top Brazilian instrumentalist widely considered the “Jimi Hendrix of the bandolin.” A versatile master who has singlehandedly reinvented the 10-string bandolin, de Holanda synthesizes distinct musical styles from around the world. Together, these international virtuosos and our American big band will interpret Monk’s music in a way completely unique to this collaboration.
