A jazz musician and bandleader will perform next week at Texas Tech.

T. S. Monk, jazz drummer, bandleader, and the son of Thelonious Monk will perform at Texas Tech’s Allen Theatre on Friday, November 11th at 7 p.m.

The event is part of Tech’s Presidential Lecture and Performance Series.

Thelonious S. Monk Jr. was a fixture in his father’s band until Thelonious Monk retired in 1975. Since then, T.S. Monk has received the first New York Jazz Awards “Recording of the Year”, and Downbeat Magazine’s Album of the Year Reader’s Choice Award for the album “Monk on Monk”, a tribute for his father’s 80th birthday.

T.S. Monk’s jazz sextet consists of pianist Helen Sung, bass player Erik Privert, Bruce Harris on Trumpet, and tenor sax player Willie Williams.

Stephen Jones, director of jazz studies at Tech said “T.S. Monk is special because he’s managed to establish his own successful career in the shadow of his father, which doesn’t often happen in jazz.”
