After Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk is the most widely recorded composer in American jazz. On the hundredth anniversary of his birth, we celebrate a true jazz icon with our own SFJAZZ Collective, who delight us with their fresh takes on Monk's music.
About the SFJAZZ Collective
An all-star ensemble comprising eight of the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the SFJAZZ Collective’s mission each year is to perform fresh arrangements of works by a modern master and newly commissioned pieces by each Collective member. Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form.
Each one-hour family matinee features live performance, audience participation, Q&A, and amazing music.
