Thelonious Monk contributed countless standards to the jazz canon. In a remarkable exposition of Monk's enduring genius, five top pianists will take turns playing sixty-one of Monk’s compositions during free afternoon marathons. The players include jazz authority and MONK@100 co-curator Ethan Iverson; Duke alum Jeb Patton, who worked with Monk collaborator Paul Jeffrey in the Duke Jazz Ensemble; Durham-raised pianist Chris Pattishall, named one of the top five jazz musicians under thirty by Wynton Marsalis; adventurous dynamo Orrin Evans, a Pew fellow and student of the great Kenny Barron; and Roxboro native Frank Kimbrough, a composer, Juilliard professor, and member of the Maria Schneider Orchestra.
