T. S. Monk Sextet
On Saturday, September 20th at 8 PM the vermont Center will be presenting the T. S. Monk Sextet in concert.
T.S. Monk is a drummer and the heir to his father, Thelonious Monk's legacy. T.S. is dignified, personable and unpretentious. He moves forward in life playing his own great music while still paying homage to the immense contributions his father made to the music's improvisational vocabulary and repertoire.
T.S. is co-founder and chairman of the board of trustees of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, one of the most highly regarded schools and jazz competitions in the world. He has tirelessly built upon the work initiated with his beloved, late sister Barbara. An extremely selective program, the Monk Institute has furthered the careers of many of today's rising stars and created a culture of sharing and educational ambassadorship.
The Monk Institute's impact extends throughout the world through a collaboration with UNESCO, where the celebration of International Jazz Day provides a vehicle for thousands of performing and educational activities to take place. Using social networking and free web-broadcasting, their scope affects millions. This year they had programs in 196 countries and all 50 U.S. States.
T.S. Monk will perform with his well-oiled, hard-driving, hard-bop sextet comprised of New York's first call talent. The group includes his tenor player of many years, Willie Williams.
