John Beasley's MONK'estra is a 17-piece BIG modern jazz BAND. Beasley captures the spirit of Monk's unique quirkiness, offbeat accents, punchy dissonances, in his fresh arrangements of Monk's and other classic and original compositions.

Beasley's contemporary twist incorporates Afro-Cuban rhythms, modern jazz playing, hip hop, traditional big band instrumentation, stunningly atmospheric ensemble textures, powerfully driven by the propulsive rhythm team of bassist Rickey Minor, drummer Gary Novak, and Beasley's own melodica.
