In what's become an annual tradition, piano stars gather to celebrate the birthday of one of the best ever, with each keyboardist playing a brief set and then passing the baton. Considering the heavyweight lineup, which includes Luis Perdomo, Helen Sung, James Carney and Aaron Parks—not to mention the immortal awesomeness of the Monk songbook—you're in for a heck of an afternoon.
