'Round Midnight: Monk's Legacy

Thelonious Monk is a singular genius in the world of jazz. One such composition is the masterpiece "'Round Midnight," written when Monk was only 18 years old. Tonight, his music will be performed by two of the most exciting young pianists of the next generation of jazz: 13-year-old Indonesian sensation Joey Alexander, the first true child prodigy in the history of jazz; and New Orleans' Sullivan Fortner, recipient of the 2015 American Pianists Association's prestigious Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz honor.
