Monk Dreams, Hallucinations and Nightmares

With music director and pianist Frank Carlberg.

As part of our annual Thelonious Monk Festival, Frank Carlberg Large Ensemble’s Monk Dreams, Hallucinations and Nightmares returns to Dizzy's with new perspectives on Monk’s music—and on large ensemble composition in general. The project, which recently earned an exceptionally rare 5-Star review in DownBeat magazine, is not intended as a formal Thelonious Monk tribute, but rather, as Carlberg describes it, as “a celebration of the beauty and vitality of his music.” Aside from ‘”Round Midnight,” Carlberg’s pieces are new compositions, not Monk arrangements, and yet Monk’s tunes are directly quoted and paraphrased throughout.
