Concert: John Daly Jazz

Date: Saturday 17 February  Time: 8:30pm  Admission: €14/€12

The music of Thelonius Monk is a constant fascination, which has been the subject of renewed focus thanks to his centenary last autumn. His compositions, and his pianistic approach to other people’s material, were initially condemned as being too weird (or even incompetent). But musicians like Coleman Hawkins and Dizzy Gillespie immediately saw his value, and he went on to influence the next generation of soloists such as Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. This evening’s programme will include everything from his most simple and singable tunes to compositions that still present a challenge to adventurous performers.

  John Daly

Brian Priestley, though better known as a writer and broadcaster, is an inveterate pianist and a fan of Monk.  He’ll be joined by former Dublin resident (via Monaghan, North Carolina and Berklee), Tom Caraher on saxophone.  Driving the engine will be the hot Limerick-based rhythm-section of bassist Peter Hanagan and drummer John Daly.
