Frost Concert Jazz Band
John Beasley, guest arranger and conductor

John Daversa, director

Pianist, composer, and arranger John Beasley reimagines the music of Thelonious Monk with humor and daring in this collaborative large-ensemble project, MONK’estra, which vividly conjures Monk’s spirit with an irresistible mix of contemporary sounds, a New-Orleans bounce, a dash of Afro-Cuban grooves, and some hip-hop swagger. The Financial Times described the music as hip-hop merges with swing and sensuous Ellingtonia sits on a sparse contemporary pulse with the New Yorker adding that “Beasley takes Monk’s sturdy tunes on a joyride for MONK’estra.”
