Event Description

With his latest CD, award-winning pianist Matt King took 12 of Thelonious Monk's iconic, quirky compositions and arranged them via the pulsating rhythms of Brazil, producing a truly fresh musical alchemy: "Monk in Brazil". WBGO has been spinning the album since last fall, and it received glowing write-ups in February's "Downbeat" magazine and the May issue of "Jersey Jazz". This CD release party will feature Anton Denner (reeds), Itaiguara Brandao (bass), and Adriano Santos (drums). Don't miss this very special event, and to quote jazz great Rufus Reid: "If you love Monk and Brazilian music, get ready to party!" (reservations highly recommended)
