Double GRAMMY® winner and Emmy-nominated recording artist John Beasley leads a smashing 15-piece big band, MONK’estra, which has performed more than 80 concerts around the world. 

The feel and sound of MONK’estra captures the spirit of Thelonious Monk’s singular style with its off-beat melodies, humor, strange beauty and unbounded swing in fresh arrangements that have an eye to the future infused with contemporary harmonies, unstoppable grooves, flavored with hints of New Orleans, hip-hop, Afro-Cuban, and a contagious sense of fun.
