Tyshawn Sorey & Jason Moran

In this dream collaboration, two of American music’s brightest and most adventurous modern minds, Tyshawn Sorey and Jason Moran, collaborate to pay tribute to their clear musical and intellectual predecessor, Thelonious Monk. A MacArthur fellow lauded by The Los Angeles Times for his “relentless thirst for experimentation,” Moran is best known in these parts for IN MY MIND, a reimagining of Monk’s 1959 Town Hall concert commissioned by Duke Performances. Sorey is a powerhouse drummer, digging into jazz and funk grooves with great authority. There are few pairs of musicians as capable of pulling Monk’s legacy into this century, in spirit and in sound.
