John Beasley presents MONK'estra*
A Bayside Summer Nights Concert (Thursday Night Jazz)
John Beasley, bandleader
Our Thursday Night Jazz finale features the MONK’estra, John Beasley's killer contemporary big band that pays a loving centennial tribute to the music of Thelonious Monk while infusing it with contemporary harmonies, unstoppable grooves and a contagious sense of fun. Concert opens with a set from San Diego’s own homegrown jazz piano genius, Joshua White.
*The San Diego Symphony does not appear as part of this concert.
