GRAMMY®- and Emmy-nominated recording artist John Beasley leads a smashing big band called MONK’estra. 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 flavored with hints of New Orleans, hip-hop, Afro-Cuban, contemporary and atmospheric rhythms and colors.

“Some of the most mesmerizing big band music of recent memory.” 
Beasley—a far-ranging pianist, composer, and arranger who has performed with Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Dianne Reeves, Steely Dan, Marcus Miller, Christian McBride —is easily one of the most versatile musicians in jazz. He leads a sparkling career as a bandleader, a first-call keyboardist, composer and arranger for bands and film and television projects.  He is the Music Director for the Thelonious Monk Institute, International Jazz Day concerts. In 2016, he earned an Emmy nomination for “Jazz at the White House” for Best Musical Direction on ABC TV.  
MONK’estra re-imagines Monk’s compositions with an eye to the future with a killer contemporary big band that pays loving tribute to the master’s music while infusing it with contemporary harmonies, unstoppable grooves, and a contagious sense of fun.
