Da Camera presents Jason Moran
Da Camera’s jazz series kicks off with Jason Moran Presents In My Mind: Monk at Town Hall, 1959. As a child in Houston studying classical piano, Moran heard a recording of legendary pianist Thelonious Monk in his parent’s living room. The experience changed his life. In this critically acclaimed multimedia tribute to Monk, Moran focuses on the iconoclastic jazz pianist’s 1959 performance at The Town Hall in New York City. Rather than “replay” the event, Moran delves into Monk’s life and work for a highly personal and innovative tribute.
