    Thelonius Monk: April 28th - May 4th

    Thelonius Monk, a giant of American music is the second most recorded jazz composer after Ellington. His legacy continues through the Thelonius Monk Institute which in addition to hosting an annual International Jazz Competition   works with UNESCO in promoting International Jazz Day April 30. So this week Monk’s music is in the spotlight on Blue

    International Jazz Day Apr 30 is part sponsored by Thelonius Monk Institute - so our Blue Tunes spotlight shines on Monk all this week- be prepared for the unorthodox.
