Jazz drummer T.S. Monk, son of the legendary pianist Thelonious Monk, demonstrates his remarkable talents as a bandleader, arranger and musician at Dorthaan's Place. This performance is part of Dorthaan's Place, NJPAC's jazz brunch series.
T.S. Monk's invaluable contributions to music-making include the founding of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, which has helped launch the careers of some of the jazz world's biggest talents. A performer since childhood, when Max Roach gave him his first drum set, T.S. Monk toured with his father's trio until 1975 and has since released hit recordings (Monk On Monk) and sold out venues here and abroad.
A sumptuous buffet brunch, including an omelet station and a medley of desserts, is served at NICO Kitchen + Bar at 11am and 1pm, with sets scheduled at 11:30am and 1:30pm.
