Miles Okazaki Solo plays Thelonious Monk

Der Vorverkauf ist beendet. Es sind noch Tickets an der Abendkasse verfügbar.

The year 2017 marked the centennial of Thelonious Monk's birth, full of commemorations and remembrances of the master composer. After performing in a tribute concert that year, guitarist Miles Okazaki decided to embark on a deep dive into Monk's music, documenting his progress as a recording project.

Over the course of the next year, he exhaustively researched every composition in the repertoire and translated each one onto the guitar, staying as faithful as possible to the original material while improvising arrangements with a focus on rhythm. With 70 compositions spanning six full-length albums, this is the first time that the complete Thelonious Monk songbook has been recorded on a single solo instrument, including three compositions never recorded by composer himself.
