T.S. MONK performs for the 100th birthday tribute to Thelonious Monk.

Bird’s Basement is thrilled to host T.S. Monk: jazz drummer, composer, bandleader and son of jazz pianist Thelonious Monk.

After earning a reputation in school as a rabble-rouser, and graduating, the young Monk joined his father’s trio and toured with his dad until the elder Monk’s retirement in 1975. T. S. then launched into the music that had captivated him and his generation, R&B. He first toured with a group called Natural Essence and afterward, with his sister Barbara, formed his own band with which he had hits on two recordings, House Of Music and More Of The Good Life, where he played drums, arranged, and sang.

Critics and the public lauded T. S. Monk (Thelonious Sphere Monk, III) as his father’s true musical heir, as bandleader, and performer. To further honour his father’s legacy and support the efforts of education, Thelonious turned his attention toward forming the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.
