Taking inspiration from the Steve Lacy/Roswell Rudd School Days band from the early 1960s, Thelonious explore and celebrate Monk’s centenary and repertoire with both childlike curiosity as well as forensic attention to detail.
Through collective learning of Monk’s unique catalogue of 70 tunes from the complete original recordings in a slow process lasting several months of regular playing, probing, rehearsing, reflecting, memorising, meditating, internalising and improvising, Thelonious arrive at flexible interpretations of the material that are as dangerous as anything in contemporary music, as well as comforting, groovy and dreamy.
Martin has worked extensively with Monk alumnus Paul Motian (Check out Martin’s ECM recording with him, Change of Heart), and Hans has played and recorded with the original Monk repertoire guru Steve Lacy (London Ear). Calum is one of the most melodic and cutting-edge rhythm players active on the London jazz scene today, perfects partners in the exploration of Monk’s music.
