Rose Theater

Corea Plays Monk

While availability is limited for this performance, secure your seats now to see legendary Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra drummer Herlin Riley perform, Crescent City Monk with Herlin Riley & Friends, Apr 6–7.

On a few unforgettable occasions, Chick Corea has joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis — a group he calls "the greatest big band on the planet" — to perform transformative new iterations of his music. Now, for the first time, they're joining forces to explore the work of another master pianist and composer: Thelonious Monk, the high priest of modern music.

Corea has provided the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with a list of his favorite Monk compositions, and the band's brilliant arrangers have crafted inspired new versions of these classics. With complex yet always-swinging rhythms, poetic and beautiful harmonic progressions, and iconoclastic, tuneful melodies, Monk's compositions lend themselves to endless adaptation. The ensemble sections of these new arrangements and Chick Corea's masterful, original take on Monk's harmonies will demonstrate why this repertoire is a definitive platform for thoughtful improvisation and high quality jazz.

Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.

Right across the hall from the Corea Plays Monk performance in Rose Theater, legendary Jazz at Lincoln Center drummer Herlin Riley leads NEA Jazz Masters & a group of distinctive virtuosos, in The Appel Room concert Crescent City Monk with Herlin Riley & Friends April 6-7. With shows at 7pm / 9:30pm, there's time to catch two masterfully unique shows in one night!
