On Friday, January 16th The Tributary Jazz Ensemble will perform works by American, modernist composer Thelonius Monk.

A self-proclaimed "heritage band," the ensemble was formed in 2006 for the purpose of studying and performing music from the jazz songbook. Members includes Pete Lavoie (alto saxophone), Paul Woell (guitar), Bruce Morrow (bass) and Davu Seru (drums).

Showtime, 7pm. Suggested donation, $5.

Have a listen to the ensemble's version of Monk's Ruby My Dear.

From Tony Roberts:

This performance was a real treat -- a great set of charts dished out in an intimate setting. So intimate, in fact, that I almost felt like a participant on every chord change and finger-busting run. The sound was balanced and even though we were very close to the performers, we were not blasted through the windows into the cold, cold night. I hated to see this evening end.
