Not every pianist can boast a CV as rich as that of John Beasley, who's toured with Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard, worked with Queen Latifah and A.R. Rahman, and served as music director for Steely Dan. Here, Beasley leads a cadre of Juilliard's finest student performers in crafty takes on the Thelonious Monk canon.
