Add to Calendar 2017-08-12 7:30 pm 2017-08-12 Ted Rosenthal Quintet, Tribute to Thelonious Monk at Lee Congregational Church Berkshires Jazz, Inc. continues its summer of centennial tributes on Aug. 12 with the Ted Rosenthal Quintet, in a 100th birthday salute to Thelonious Monk. TD Bank is sponsoring the concert, which takes place at the Lee Meeting House (Congregational Church), starting at 7:30pm.

Renowned as both a pianist and composer, Monk was known for his unique improvisational style, and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire. Even now, 35 years after his passing, he still has a strong and loyal worldwide following. Ted Rosenthal is one of the leading jazz pianists of his generation, actively touring worldwide as a soloist and in various configurations. He has performed with many jazz greats, including Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Phil Woods, Bob Brookmeyer, and James Moody.

Winner of the 1988 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition, Rosenthal has 15 CDs to his name, including “Images of Monk”, which provides the musical foundation for the concert. In his debut performance for Berkshires Jazz, Rosenthal appears with his quintet, comprising Mike Rodriguez (trumpet), Joel Frahm (saxophone), Martin Wind (bass), and Jimmy Macbride (drums).

The concert is the third of four centennial birthdays that Berkshires Jazz is celebrating in 2017: Ella Fitzgerald (part of the Berkshire Gateway Jazz Weekend in June); Buddy Rich (July 22); Thelonious Monk (Aug. 12); and Dizzy Gillespie (part of the mid-October Pittsfield CityJazz Festival). Additional support is being provided by North Coast Brewing Co., a supporter of jazz events nationwide.

The concert takes place at the Lee Meeting House (Lee Congregational Church), 25 Park Place in the Berkshire Gateway town of Lee, Mass., a stunning, historic venue, both acoustically and visually. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 on day of event.
