Mostly Monk: Mike LeDonne Trio

With pianist Mike LeDonne, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Lewis Nash.

“Hearing Mike LeDonne was a startling revelation. I was knocked out.” – Milt Jackson

“Mike LeDonne is one of the most talented pianists of this particular era. He’s incredible.” – Oscar Peterson

Pianist and organist Mike LeDonne is a modern master who in the past few decades has worked with Benny Goodman, Sonny Rollins, Milt Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Golson, and more. Many of these musicians were among Thelonious Monk’s top collaborators, and tonight LeDonne will draw upon that musical proximity and his own instrumental kinship as he joins Jazz at Lincoln Center’s annual Monk Festival. Monk’s infectious music is a perfect platform for improvisation and ongoing re-imagination, and with 72 brilliant compositions from which to choose, a set of “mostly Monk” simply never gets old. LeDonne’s ace trio features Peter Washington on bass and Lewis Nash on drums, so it’s guaranteed to be a virtuosic evening of swinging jazz.
