What You'll Get
The Angel City Jazz Festival celebrates a decade of cultivating and revitalizing the jazz culture in Los Angeles with a tribute to innovative composer/pianist Thelonius Monk. Monk's influence on the jazz scene is inevitable -- It can be found in practically every musician's compositions thanks to his original, radical ideas of dissonance and angular melodic twists during his start in the 1940s. The second most recorded jazz composer (after Duke Ellington), Monk wrote what are now standard jazz compositions, including "Straight, No Chaser," "Round Midnight" and "In Walked Bud." Presenting at the gorgeous Ford Theatres in Hollywood, the festival kicks off performing "Thelonious Monk's Afro-Cuban Dream," adding the clave to Carmen McRae's "Carmen sings Monk." They'll wrap things up with a DJ twist when DJs Mark de Clive-Lowe, DJ Logic and Deantoni Parks sample and cut Monk's iconic pieces.
