Eric Rasmussen – alto sax, Mary Petrich – tenor sax, Adam Roberts – tenor sax, Keith Kelly – baritone sax, Zach Gillespie – cornet, Jeff Libman – guitar, Gabe Hall-Rodrigues – accordion, Russell Schmidt – piano, Ben Hedquist – bass, Connor Sample – drums

In celebration of the centenary of Thelonious Monk’s birth, the Nash Composers Coalition will debut ten new arrangements of his music. The pieces selected have been arranged specifically for the current NCC line-up—including newest members Zach Gillespie and Gabe Hall-Rodrigues—with each performer contributing a new chart.

Spearheaded by Keith Kelly, Jeff Libman, and Russell Schmidt, the Nash Composers Coalition has been created with the intent of offering a more collective, collaborative musicmaking experience, where the players also share their uniquely diverse voices as writers with one another and, of course, with our audience at The Nash.

Please join us to hear the NCC lay down some “brilliant” Monk covers.
