Much like his father, drummer T.S. Monk has made invaluable contributions to jazz, including founding the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, which has educated and helped launch the careers of some of our best musicians. T.S. first performed with his father’s group in the early 1970s, but for the last few decades he has been an excellent band leader with a reputation for highlighting obscure compositions deserving of larger audiences. We’re celebrating the Monk centennial all week at Dizzy’s, and there’s no better place to be on his 100th birthday than in the club with his son! ================================================================================ Joey DeFrancesco Plays Monk Sun, Oct 15 from 4:30 - 8:00pm PDT Music With organist Joey DeFrancesco, saxophonist Troy Roberts, and drummer Jason Brown “The modern master of the Hammond B-3 organ.” – NPR Multi-instrumentalist and singer Joey DeFrancesco was born in 1971, signed his first record deal at age 16, and has since recorded and performed with Miles Davis, Jimmy Smith, Elvin Jones, James Moody, Ray Charles, and countless more.

The JLCO has put forth a vast, innovative body of original work over the past decade, and for two nights in Rose Theater they will treat audiences to a collection of their best compositions. Featuring current JLCO members like Victor Goines, Ted Nash, Chris Crenshaw, Carlos Henriquez, Vincent Gardner, and Wynton Marsalis, plus past members and special guests like Wycliffe Gordon and Christian McBride, the JLCO songbook includes some of the finest and most stylistically diverse big band music in history. Such variety and uniformly high quality is a rare achievement for any band, but no other group has ever had 11 composers and arrangers of this level in its ranks. The JLCO composers’ thematic ambitions, distinctive musical personalities, and unprecedented range make their repertoire a particularly potent demonstration of big band jazz’s limitless potential.
