Legends Of Jazz: Thelonius Monk says
The Justin Varnes Quartet plays tribute to the music of Thelonious Monk.

In an expansion of the series Justin Varnes created on John Coltrane, the group will explore Monk’s music and dig into why he is one of the most misunderstood, yet accomplished composers and bandleaders.

Justin will feature the same musicians who so skillfully brought Coltrane’s music to life: John Sandfort on Tenor Saxophone, Nick Rosen on piano and GRAMMY-award winner Kevin Smith on bass.

As with the entire Legends of Jazz series, Mr. Varnes will guide guests–in engaging, narrative form– through the life of the artist, as well as the impact that his life influences had on his musical legacy.

Oh, and they’ll also play their behinds off!
