Bandleader T.S. Monk has recorded numerous albums of his own compositions, as well as those of his father, pianist Thelonious Monk (1917-1982). He toured with his father, and honored him by co-founding the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in 1986. Currently based in New Jersey, T.S. Monk has "charted his own course as a composer, arranger and melodic drummer" (NPR).

T.S. Monk will be joined by Theo Hill on piano, Willie Williams on tenor saxophone, Randall Haywood on trumpet, April May Webb on vocals, Patience Higgins on alto saxophone and flute, and Kenny Davis on bass.

This concert concludes the 17th annual Wesleyan Jazz Orchestra Weekend.
