In keeping with a Winter Jazzfest tradition of the past few years, and in concert with our celebration of Thelonious Monk's 100th birthday, we present a combination of solo, duo, trio and other performances of the complete 1965 album, Solo Monk. This celebration will feature a slate of 12 improvisers playing the full album from start to finish in unplanned combinations. The full lineup is now confirmed: vocalist Deva Mahal, pianists Kris Davis and David Virelles, soprano saxophonist Sam Newsome, tenor saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, guitarist Marc Ribot, violinist Charlie Burnham, cellist Erik Friedlander, bassists Linda Oh and Trevor Dunn and drummers Hamid Drake and 2017 WJF Artist-in-Residence Andrew Cyrille.
