METROPOLE ORKEST BIG BAND PLAYS THELONIOUS MONK
O.L.V. MIHO HAZAMA
Thelonious Monk’s 100 birth year is the perfect occasion for this tribute to the legendary American pianist/composer by the Metropole Orchestra Big Band.
The 100th birth year of American pianist Thelonious Monk is a great occasion for the Metropole Orchestra Big Band to breathe new life into his ever relevant compositions. The idea came from Japanese conductor/composer Miho Hazama. She emphasizes that Monk was not only a wonderful piano player, but that he really should be remembered for his unique, inventive compositions: ‘He wrote simple melodies to which he added very inventive harmonies. His solo recordings are perfect for converting his compositions into interesting big band arrangements.
