Ed Neumeister 'Monk Suite' (USA/DEN)

Ed Neumeister: trombone
Morten Ramsbøl: bass
Howard Curtis: drums

Celebrating the 100th birth year of Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917–2017), the Ed Neumeister trio with Morten Ramsbøl and Howard Curtis, both fellow professors with Neumeister at the KUG University in Graz, will be performing their versions of classic and lesser known compositions by Monk. Included are some of his hits like „Round Midnight“ and „In Walked Bud“ and masterpieces such as „Crepuscule With Nellie“ and „Trinkle Tinkle“.

As an added special occasion, we get to celebrate the great impresario Christoph Huber’s birthday. Happy birthday, Christoph!!! (Ed Neumeister)

Nach seiner Ellington-Hommage anlässlich des 100. Geburtstags von Billy Strayhorn, Alter Ego des Dukes, widmet er sich nun dem Einhunderter einer anderen jazzhistorisch eminent wichtigen Figur, deren Kompositionen interessanterweise nichts an Aktualität und Modernität verloren haben – Thelonious Sphere Monk. Well you needn’t! CH
