Dizzy's Club

Monk on Tap

The “Monk Mob” with special guest Michela Marino Lerman

The spirit of Thelonious Monk fills the House of Swing this weekend, as all three Jazz at Lincoln Center venues celebrate the 2018 Monk Festival. Pianist and composer Helen Sung leads the Dizzy’s Club shows, and she has crafted an extraordinary series that celebrates Monk in song, dance, and as a singular jazz icon, with a different band and unique theme for each evening. “The genius of modern music,” Thelonious Monk was an enormous influence on Sung and her musical evolution from classical to jazz piano. She was a member of the inaugural class of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, was a semifinalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition, and was commissioned by North Coast Brewing Company to write the theme song for their Brother Thelonious ale.
For night two of the Monk Festival, Sung brings her “Monk Mob” octet, featuring some of New York City’s finest jazz artists: saxophonists John Ellis, Jordan Pettay, and Claire Daly; trumpeter Bruce Harris; trombonist Coleman Hughes; bassist George DeLancey; and drummer Donald Edwards. They will perform new arrangements of classic Monk tunes, featuring dynamic rhythmic interplay with special guest tap dancer Michela Marino Lerman.
