MONK’estra is a smashing big band project that captures the spirit of Thelonious Monk’s singular music with fresh arrangements by John Beasley. Off-beat melodies and humor, strange beauty and unbounded swing with New Orleans spirit, hip-hop, Afro-Cuban rhythms and atmospheric colors.

MONK’estra is conducted by GRAMMY® Award-nominee John Beasley. MONK’estra re-imagines Thelonious Monk’s compositions with an eye to the future; a killer contemporary big band that pays loving tribute to the master’s music while infusing it with contemporary harmonies, unstoppable grooves, and a contagious sense of fun.
