Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra bassist Carlos Henriquez will present the world premiere of an exclusive new program featuring the JLCO and special guest Pedrito Martinez entitled Monk con Clave, highlighting new and reinvented music inspired by Thelonious Monk.
The syncopated melodies and rhythms of genius composer Thelonious Monk gets the Afro-Latin treatment in this one of a kind evening of clave and swing. With music direction by Henriquez, this first-ever performance includes reinventions of Monk classics such as "Bye-Ya," "Evidence," "Boo Boo’s Birthday," and inspired new works. With congas and clave providing the groove, any Monk piece becomes danceable.
Named “the most important Latin jazz artist in New York City today” and “the heir to the legacy of Tito Puente” by New York Latin Culture, Henriquez is the longtime bassist for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. He is a Grammy Award-nominated artist, a talented arranger, and one of the most exciting bandleaders in town.
There will be a pre-concert lecture starting 1 hour prior to the performance.
