    Jazz & Poetry

    John Sinclair/Thelonious Monk@100

    According to John Sinclair, this concert is 30 years in the making.

    Thelonious Sphere Monk (October 10, 1917 – February 17, 1982) was an American jazz pianist and composer. Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including: ‘Round Midnight, Ruby, My Dear, In Walked Bud, Well You Needn't, and Straight, No Chaser. Monk is the second most recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed more than a thousand pieces, whereas Monk wrote about 70.

    John Sinclair (born October 2, 1941) is an American poet, writer, and political activist from Flint, Michigan. Sinclair's defining style is jazz poetry, and he has released most of his works in audio formats. Most of his pieces include musical accompaniment, usually by a varying group of collaborators dubbed the Blues Scholars. I consider him to be one of my mentors and a lifelong friend.

    The PLANET D NONET was founded by trumpeter James O’Donnell and me at the very beginning of 2007. James and I have been making music together since 1977. Our band is about swing, blues, space-age jazz, and classic American songs, all served with plenty of good humor with an eye toward turning people onto this kind of music.
