SFJAZZ High School All-Stars Orchestra at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts



Fri, December 7, 2012




Much has been said of the music and the legacy of Thelonious Monk. His unique and superlative way of taking simple yet recognizable elements and crafting them into musical masterpieces deserves to be studied and celebrated. This season, the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars Orchestra honors the lasting heritage of Monk’s music by presenting beautiful arrangements of some of his most infectious compositions, including “Misterioso”, “Evidence”, “Well You Needn’t” and exquisite ballads such as “Ruby, My Dear.” A rich palette of Monk’s work will be expressed through the sonic tapestry of the All-Stars Orchestra, featuring the Bay Area’s most skilled young jazz performers and directed by renowned saxophonist and educator Paul Contos.
