    T.S. Monk


    Celebrating over four decades in music and entertainment, Thelonious Sphere Monk, III (T.S. Monk) is an internationally acclaimed jazz musician, composer, bandleader, vocalist and arts educator. Lauded by critics and jazz fans alike as the true musical heir to his father, the iconic jazz composer and pianist Thelonious Monk, he has paved his own path to success, inspiring a new generation of jazz enthusiasts with his innovative and infectious music. As the co-founder and chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, he supports jazz education and brings an international spotlight to the music for nearly three decades. He is the driving force behind the Institute’s annual International Jazz Competition and many of its educational initiatives. Monk is also a collaborator with Herbie Hancock, UNESCO and the Institute for the annual International Jazz Day, a gathering of jazz musicians from 196 different countries.
