ORBIT: A TRIBUTE TO THELONIUS MONK
Orbit: A Tribute to Thelonius Monk features Jared Beckstead on bass, Kevin Waters on drums, Artur Kivilaht on guitar, and Reginald Lewis on saxophone. Formed in early 2017, the band met while studying at the University of Manitoba’s jazz performance program, and came together with the common goal of rethinking Monk’s compositions while embodying the true spirit of Monk. Orbit interprets his original compositions with the same rhythmic drive and playful spontaneity that made the music so unique and timeless, while allowing the band’s individual musical styles to shine through.
