PART TWO | Of Monks & Dreams: A Special Conversation with T.S. Monk

Olivia Burke

In the second part of our special two-part episode with T.S. Monk, we discuss what many consider to be his father's great quartet, with saxophonist Charlie Rouse, bassist John Ore and drummer Frankie Dunlop; Monk’s role as mentor; and why his High Priest of Bebop moniker deserves expansion. We also dive deep into the special relationship between Monk and Duke Ellington. This and so much more.

Milestones theme produced by Riley K. Glasper

Production Assistance: Corey Goldberg
