Jazz at the Library: Monk Imagined & Reimagined

JazzFresno, the Fresno County Public Library, KFSR 90.7 FM, and the Woodward Park Friends of the Library will host a free, in person and open to the public Jazz at the Library presentation on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the Woodward Park Regional County Library located at 944 E. Perrin Ave. (Champlain & Perrin), Fresno, CA 93720.
This month we welcome Rick Helzer as he presents the music of Monk Imagined and Reimagined. Rick will be joined by John Lauffenburger on bass and Gary Newmark on drums.
“Thelonious Monk does not simply play the piano–he lives through it. The instrument is an extension of himself. Each note Monk plays is a cathartic expression of emotion–love, loss, pain, anguish–all conspiring…to create a sound world unique to the mysterious jazz master, an auditory experience impossible to replicate and
impossible to ignore….”
