Who are they? History has recorded their phenomenal mastery, almost from their birth, known today as THE LEGENDS OF JAZ: Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, to name a few of almost 30 whose work is indelible to the American fabric of JAZZ, thus making this unequalled body, legendary.
What happens when European harmony is conjoined with African rhythms? It is the birth of an original, “JAZZ BABY!”
What made ROUND MIDNIGHT, the jazz piece all jazz musicians want to try? Perhaps, the words when Monk wrote that piece. It is a love song, when examined carefully. Many of us are familiar with the cautionary admonition, not to let the sun set with your mind in a bad state.
Monk could not handle the midnight chime, with his love life was in despair! Thus, ROUND MIDNIGHT.
Monk was born in October 1917, died in 1982 of a stroke.
An Die Musik (a cultural haven) in Baltimore, showcased the legends of jazz this October with Benny Russell (saxophone); Nuc Vega (drums); Greg Small (piano) and Phil Ravita (bass).
